Christ My Song - 372
Today our Lord went up on high (Johannes Zwick/
Catherine Winkworth/Johannes Thomas Rüegg)
Today our Lord went up on high.
1. Today our Lord went up on high,
and so our songs we raise:
to him with strong desire we cry
to keep us in his grace;
for we poor sinners here beneath
are dwelling still 'mid woe and death.
All hope in him we place:
Hallelujah! Hallelujah! PDF - Midi
2. Thank God, that now the way is made!
The cherub-guarded door,
through him on whom our help was laid,
stands open evermore;
who knoweth this is glad at heart,
and swift prepares him to depart
where Christ is gone before:
3. Our heavenward course begins when we
have found our Father, God,
and join us to his sons, and flee
the paths that once we trod;
for he looks down, and they look up:
they feel his love, they live in hope,
until they meet their Lord:
4. Then all the depths of joy that lie
in this day we shall know,
when we are made like him on high,
whom we confess below;
when, bathed in life's eternal flood,
we dwell with him, the highest Good:
God grant us this to know!
