Service Resources for Ascension Sunday


Ascension Sunday is celebrated by many churches on the Sunday following the fortieth day after Easter. The day celebrates Christ’s ascension into heaven in the sight of the disciples on the Mount of Olives. The day helps us remember that the exalted Christ even now intercedes for us at the Father’s right hand.

Come, O Fount of Every blessing
O Worship the King
Immortal, invisible, God only wise
Arise, My Soul, Arise
The head that once was crowned with thorns
I know that my Redeemer lives
Fairest Lord Jesus
The Church’s one foundation
Sing Praise to God Who Reigns Above
Look, ye saints, the sight is glorious
O for a Thousand Tongues to Sing
The Day of Resurrection!
Lo, He Comes with Clouds Descending
Love divine, all love excelling
Hail, Thou Once Despised Jesus
Christ, the Lord, is risen today
Alleluia! Alleluia!
Ask Ye What Great Thing I Know
All glory, laud, and honor
Come, we that love the Lord
Holy God, We Praise Thy Name
Lord, Enthroned in Heavenly Splendor
The King Shall Come When Morning Dawns
Come Down, O Love Divine
Hail to the LORD’s Anointed
The Strife Is O’er, the Battle Done
In the Cross of Christ I glory
Christ Is Made the Sure Foundation
Round the Lord in Glory Seated
Majestic sweetness sits enthroned
Rejoice, Ye Pure in Heart
Join All the Glorious Names
