When He left, He ascended into the sky
where Wise Men once looked to lead to His Advent.
The promise of signs showed that He was nigh.
Embrace His grace, live for His glory, repent!
There’s a night coming we won’t make it through,
be it failure of heart or God’s kingdom come.
At the mercy of fate with our debts overdue,
in our frailty destined to one day succumb.
We look to He who works all things for good
and who began the music of the spheres.
We find where we couldn’t, our Lord could,
and anticipate when He’ll appear.
Our God has the power to set things right.
His light is what will lead us through this night.
