Hymnary Friends,

Please pardon this brief interruption, and please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. Here's why.

Each month half a million people visit this website for free access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet. But this project does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. Twice a year we hold a fund drive, and these drives are critical to our future.

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure giving site. Or you can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.
Harry Plantinga

118A. The Glorious Gates of Righteousness

1 The glorious gates of righteousness
throw open unto me,
and I will come to them with praise
and enter thankfully;
and I will come to them with praise
and enter thankfully.

2 This is your temple gate, O LORD:
the just shall enter there.
My Savior, I will give you thanks,
for you have heard my prayer;
My Savior, I will give you thanks,
for you have heard my prayer.

3 The stone rejected and despised
is now the cornerstone.
How wondrous are the ways of God,
unfathomed and unknown;
how wondrous are the ways of God,
unfathomed and unknown.

4 Hosanna! Ever blest is he
who comes in God's own name.
The blessing of God's holy house
upon you we proclaim.
The blessing of God's holy house
upon you we proclaim.

5 O praise the LORD, for he is good;
let all in heaven above
and all his saints on earth proclaim
his everlasting love;
and all his saints on earth proclaim
his everlasting love.
