Glorious to His native skies ! Hallelujah! Christ, awhile to mortals given, Hallelujah! Enters now the highest heaven. Hallelujah!
There the glorious triumph waits Hallelujah ! Lift your heads, eternal gates ! Hallelujah! Christ has vanquish'd death and sin, Hallelujah! Take the King of Glory in.
Lo! the heaven its Lord receives !
+ Sr. Ann's. C. M.
THE eternal gates lift up their heads,
The doors are open'd wide, The King of Glory is gone up
Unto His Father's side.
A gleam of glory lies,
That veils Thee from our eyes.
Thou art gone in before us, Lord,
Thou hast prepared a place,
And look upon Thy face.
Lift up our hearts, lift up our minds,
And let Thy grace be given,
Our treasure be in heaven.
That, where Thou art at God's right hand,
Our hope, our love may be:
For evermore in Thee.

76. 0 SAVIOUR, who for man hast trod And thence the Church, Thy chosen Bride,
The winepress of the wrath of God, With countless gifts of grace supplied, Ascend, and claim again on high
Through all her members draws from Thee Thy glory left for us to die.
Her hidden life of sanctity. A radiant cloud is now Thy seat,
O Christ, our Lord, of Thy dear care, And earth lies stretch'd beneath Thy feet; Thy lowly members heavenward bear; Ten thousand thousands round Thee sing, Be ours with Thee to suffer pain, And share the triumph of their King. With Thee for evermore to reign. The Angel-host enraptured waits: All praise from every heart and tongue Lift
up your heads, eternal gates!” To Thee, ascended Lord, be sung; O God-and-Man! the Father's throne All praise to God the Father be, Is now for evermore Thine own.
And Holy Ghost eternally.

O may Thy mighty love prevail
Our sinful souls to spare!
O may we come before Thy throne,
And find acceptance there !
All praise to Thee who dost ascend
Triumphantly to heaven;
All praise to God the Father's Name,
And Holy Ghost, be given.
In glorious robes array'd.
