Here are a few selections to add to our growing list of resources for celebrating Ascension Sunday.
Mike Farley – Celebrating and Singing the Ascension of Jesus Christ (PDF)
Who Shall Ascend the Hill of the Lord (Psalm 24)
text by Edward Clowney, arr. by Reggie Kidd (Tune: SINE NOMINE)
Leadsheet – 4pt with chords
alt: All the heav’ns are sounding, hear the angels sing
Pearly gates are opened, opened for the King:
Christ, the King of glory, Jesus King of love,
Is gone up in triumph to his throne above.
All his work is ended, joyfully we sing:
Jesus hath ascended: Glory to our King! He who came to save us, he who bled and died,
Now is crowned with glory at his Father’s side.
Never more to suffer, never more to die,
Jesus, King of glory, is gone up on high.
Praying for his children in that blessed place,
Calling them to glory, sending them hisgrace;
His bright home preparing, faithful ones for you;
Jesus ever liveth, ever loveth too.
