‘Hail the Day That Sees Him Rise’

Let’s start the day with a hymn by Charles Wesley, Hail the Day That Sees Him Rise, also known as “The Ascension Hymn.” This, stated in music, is what we believe. Jesus Christ is risen; Christ is our salvation.

I wish I knew who was performing this, so I could give due credit.
