204. The Gate Ajar for Me

1 There is a gate that stands ajar,
And through its portals gleaming
A radiance from the cross afar,
The Savior’s love revealing.

Refrain:
O depth of mercy! Can it be
That gate was left ajar for me?
For me? For me?
Was left ajar for me!

2 That gate ajar stands free for all
Who seek through it salvation;
The rich and poor, the great and small,
Of every tribe and nation. [Refrain]

4 Press onward, then, though foes may frown,
While mercy’s gate is open;
Accept the cross, and win the crown,
Love’s everlasting token. [Refrain]

5 Beyond the river’s brink we’ll lay
The cross that here is given,
And bear the crown of life away,
And love Him more in Heaven. [Refrain]
