Happy "Ascension of the Lord" day, everyone!
I thought for this "uplifting" occasion (groan) I'd repost the Ascension hymn that I wrote just after the celebration of the Ascension last year. It's a retuned hymn for which I adapted Isaac Watts' Psalm 47 paraphrase, "O For a Shout of Sacred Joy," set it to a new tune, and added a chorus. There's a well-known and oft repeated Kuyper quote that the chorus alludes to as well.
If by chance you are still in search of an Ascension psalm/hymn to sing this Sunday in your church, please feel free to use it (SoundCloud audio and PDF chart in C accessible below).
Otherwise, everyone else simply enjoy!
You can view/download a lead-sheet for it HERE.
Grace and peace,
