Do Not Stand and Stare in Wonder (Hymn for Ascension)

This hymn, inspired by the Ascension, was written by American Roman Catholic church-musician and writer Adam Michael Wood ().

It does not appear to have been released by any mainstream publisher, but Wood appears to have written the text early in the 21st century (2012), and has released it for general use under a Creative Commons license, and distributes it via his website.

With meter 13.13.13.13.13.13, it is set to the tune THAXTED, which was written by English composer Gustav Holst (1874–1934) in 1918.
