THE ASCENSION

As far as Bethany Christ led the twelve -   
Within their midst He raised His hands to bless
And in that manner they saw the Lord ascend:
And in that manner, they learned, He'll come again.
They were sent back towards Jerusalem
There to await the next sublime event:
The Holy Spirit coming at Christ's behest.
Meanwhile in heaven the Lord set down Himself
Upon the Father's throne in evidence
That all is done; and love is manifest.
Heaven assured a splendid recompense
While God assigned the richest diadem.
