12. Ye gates, lift up your heads on high

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

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

Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah,
Hallelujah, Hallelujah,
Amen, Amen, Amen.
