     1 To the chief Musician, A Psalm or Song of David. Let God arise, let his enemies be scattered: let them also that hate him flee before him. 2 As smoke is driven away, so drive them away: as wax melteth before the fire, so let the wicked perish at the presence of God. 3 But let the righteous be glad; let them rejoice before God: yea, let them exceedingly rejoice. 4 Sing unto God, sing praises to his name: extol him that rideth upon the heavens by his name JAH, and rejoice before him. 5 A father of the fatherless, and a judge of the widows, is God in his holy habitation. 6 God setteth the solitary in families: he bringeth out those which are bound with chains: but the rebellious dwell in a dry land.

     7 O God, when thou wentest forth before thy people, when thou didst march through the wilderness; Selah: 8 The earth shook, the heavens also dropped at the presence of God: even Sinai itself was moved at the presence of God, the God of Israel. 9 Thou, O God, didst send a plentiful rain, whereby thou didst confirm thine inheritance, when it was weary. 10 Thy congregation hath dwelt therein: thou, O God, hast prepared of thy goodness for the poor.(KJV)

1. Lo, God to heaven ascendeth! 
Throughout its regions vast 
With shouts triumphant blendeth 
The trumpet’s thrilling blast: 
Sing praise to Christ the Lord; 
Sing priase with exultation, 
King of each heathen nation, 
The God of hosts adored! 

2. With joy is heaven resounding 
Chirst’s glad return to see; 
Behold the saints surrounding 
The Lord who set them free. 
Bright myriads, thronging, come; 
The cherub band rejoices, 
And loud seraphic voices 
All welcome Jesus home. 

3. From cross to throne ascending, 
We follow Chirst on high 
And know the pathway wending 
To mansions in the sky. 
Our Lord is gone before; 
Yet here He will not leave us, 
But soon in heaven receive us 
And open wide the door. 

4. Our place He is preparing; 
To heaven we, too, shall rise, 
With Him His glory sharing, 
Be where our Treasure lies. 
Bestir thyself, my soul! 
Where Jesus Christ has entered, 
There let thy hope be centered; 
Press onward toward the goal. 

5. Let all our thoughts be winging 
To where Thou didst ascend, 
And let our hearts be singing: 
“We seek Thee, Christ, our Friend, 
Thee, God’s exalted Son, 
Our Life, and Way to heaven, 
To whom all power is given, 
Our Joy and Hope and Crown.”
