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

176. Lift Up Your Heads, O Mighty Gates

1 Lift up your heads, ye mighty gates:
behold, the King of glory waits!
The King of kings is drawing near,
The Saviour of the world is here.

2 Fling wide the portals of your heart;
make it a temple, set apart
from earthly use for heav'n's employ,
adorned with prayer and love and joy.

3 Redeemer, come! I open wide
my heart to you; here, Lord, abide!
Let me your inner presence feel;
your grace and love in me reveal.

4 So come, my Sovereign, enter in!
Let new and nobler life begin!
Your Holy Spirit guide us on,
until the glorious crown be won.
