ASCENSION

(Luke 24:44-53)

Scriptures fulfilled,

Minds opened,

We followed Him to Bethany.

And there was joy in the blessing

Of our risen Lord,

Jesus, God on earth.

And in the blessing

Was the leaving,

And in the leaving

Was the blessing –

His Spirit of life and power

To witness to the world

Of our ascended Lord,

Jesus, man in heaven.
