93. Ye Gates, Lift Up Your Heads

1 Ye gates, lift up your heads on high;
ye doors that last for aye,
be lifted up, that so the King
of glory enter may.
But who of glory is the King?
The mighty Lord is this;
e'en that same Lord that strong in might
and great in glory is.

2 Ye gates, lift up your heads; ye doors,
doors that do last for aye,
be lifted up, that so the King
of glory enter may.
But who is he that is the King of glory?
who is this?
The Lord is hosts, and none but he
the King of glory is.
