Hymn: I Want to Walk as a Child of the Light


The following is not a hymn specific to the Feast or Solemnity of the Ascension of the Lord. There are many other beautiful texts written to be sung on this great festival of the Lord.  But the final personal response to the Lord ascending into heaven in His human flesh entering into the fulness of His Father's glory and being seated at His right hand ... is ...?  For me it is very simple: I want to be with Jesus.
