The Savior when to heaven he rose

The Saviour, when to heaven he rose,|
In splendid triumph o'er his foes,
Scattered his gifts on men below,
And wide his royal bounties flow.
Hence sprung the Apostles' honoured name;
Sacred beyond heroic fame;
In lowlier forms, to bless our eyes,
Pastors from hence, and teachers rise.
From Christ their varied gifts derive,
And, fed by Christ, their graces live;
While, guarded by his mighty hand,
Midst all the rage of hell they stand.
So shall the bright succession run
Through the last courses of the sun;
While unborn churches by their care
Shall rise and flourish large and fair.
Jesus our Lord their hearts shall know -
The Spring whence all these blessings flow;
Pastors and people shout his praise
Through all the round of endless days.
