Ascended Christ, who gained

Ascended Christ, who gained
the glory that we sing,
anointed and ordained,
our Prophet, Priest and King:
by many tongues the church displays
your power and praise in all her songs.

2. No titles, thrones, or powers
can ever rival yours;
no passing mood of ours
can turn aside your laws:
you reign above each other name
of worth or fame, the Lord of love!

3. Now from your Father’s side
you make your people new;
since for our sins you died
our lives belong to you:
from our distress you set us free
for purity and holiness.

4. You call us to belong
within one body here;
in weakness we are strong
and all your gifts we share:
in you alone we are complete
and at your feet with joy bow down.

5. All strength is in your hand,
all power to you is given;
all wisdom to command
in earth and hell and heaven:
beyond all words creation sings
the King of kings and Lord of lords.
