Hymn/Song Information

Lift up your heads you mighty gates




Lift up your heads, ye mighty gates;
Behold, the King of glory waits;
The King of kings is drawing near;
The Savior of the world is here!


A Helper just He comes to thee,
His chariot is humility,
His kingly crown is holiness,
His scepter, pity in distress.


O blest the land, the city blest,
Where Christ the Ruler is confessed!
O happy hearts and happy homes
To whom this King in triumph comes!


Fling wide the portals of your heart;
Make it a temple, set apart
From earthly use for heavenís employ,
Adorned with prayer and love and joy.


Redeemer, come, with us abide;
Our hearts to Thee we open wide;
Let us Thy inner presence feel;
Thy grace and love in us reveal.


Thy Holy Spirit lead us on
Until our glorious goal is won;
Eternal praise, eternal fame
Be offered, Savior, to Thy Name!


---Alternative verses---


Come them. O Saviour, and abide;
Our hearts to Thee we open wide;
may all Thy inward presence feel;
To all thy grace and love reveal.
