110. Gates of Zion

1 Open now thy gates of beauty,
Zion, let me enter there,
Where my soul in joyful duty
Waits for Him Who answers pray’r.

Refrain:
Gates of Zion, Gates of Zion,
Here the living water flows;
Gates of Zion, Gates of Zion,
Here is balm for all our woes.

2 Yes, my God, I come before Thee,
Come Thou also unto me;
Where we find Thee and adore Thee,
There a heav’n on earth must be. [Refrain]

3 Thou my faith increase and quicken,
Let me keep Thy gift divine;
Howsoe’er temptations thicken;
May Thy word still o’er me shine. [Refrain]
