59. Lift Up Your Heads, O Mighty Gates

1 Lift up your heads, O mighty gates;
behold the King of glory waits;
the King of kings is drawing near;
the Savior of the world is here!

2 Fling wide the portals of your heart;
make it a temple, set apart
in earthly use for heaven's employ,
adorned with prayer and love and joy.

3 Redeemer, come, with us abide;
our hearts to you we open wide;
let us you inner presence feel;
your grace and love in us reveal.

4 O Holy Spirit lead us on
until our glorious goal is won;
eternal praise, eternal fame
be offered, Savior, to your name!
