Blessed Ascension Day

Blessed Ascension Day, friends! We commemorate our Lord's ascension to the right hand of the Father for us and our salvation. This song is a remade tune to the Hymn Look, Ye Saints, the Sight is Glorious.


1 Look, ye saints, the sight is glorious; See the Man of Sorrows now! From the fight returned victorious, Ev'ry knee to Him shall bow. Crown Him! Crown Him! Crown Him! Crown Him! Crown Him! Crown Him! Crowns become the victor's brow. Crowns become the victor's brow.

2 Crown the Saviour! Angels, crown Him! Rich the trophies Jesus brings; On the seat of pow'r enthrone Him While the vault of heaven rings. Crown Him! Crown Him! Crown Him! Crown Him! Crown Him! Crown Him! Crown the Saviour King of kings. Crown the Saviour King of kings.

​3 Sinners in derision crowned Him, Mocking thus the Saviour's claim; Saints and angels crowd around Him, Own His title, praise His Name. Crown Him! Crown Him! Crown Him! Crown Him! Crown Him! Crown Him! Spread abroad the victor's fame. Spread abroad the victor's fame.

​4 Hark, those bursts of acclamation! Hark, those loud triumphant chords! Jesus takes the highest station; Oh, what joy the sight affords! Crown Him! Crown Him! Crown Him! Crown Him! Crown Him! Crown Him! King of kings, and Lord of lords! King of kings, and Lord of lords!

Scripture Readings for Ascension


God has gone up with a shout, the Lord with the sound of a trumpet!

The Lord says to my Lord: "Sit at my right hand, until I make your enemies your footstool."

The Lord has sworn and will not change His mind, You are a priest forever after the order of Melchizedek." The Lord is at Your right hand; He will shatter kings on the day of His wrath!
