24 (2)Psalm 24 Version 2CM
OUR Lord is risen from the dead;
   Our Jesus is gone up on high;
The powers of hell are captive led—
    Dragged to the portals of the sky.
2  There His triumphal chariot waits,
    And mighty angel voices say:
‘Lift up your heads, ye heavenly gates,
    Ye everlasting doors, give way!’
3  Roll back the bounds of mortal sight,
    And wide unfold the heavenly scene;
He claims those mansions as His right:
    Receive the King of Glory in.
4  ‘Who is the King of Glory, Who?’
    The Lord Who all His foes o’ercame;
The world, sin, death, and hell o’erthrew,
    And Jesus is the Conqueror’s name.
5  ‘Who is the King of Glory, Who?’
    The Lord of glorious power possessed,
The King of saints and angels too:
    God over all, for ever blessed!
Charles Wesley, 1707-88
