The Golden Gates Are Lifted Up

Author: Cecil F. Alexander Meter: 8.6.8.6 Appears in 108 hymnals Matching Instances: 3 Lyrics: 1. The golden gates are lifted up, The doors are opened wide; The King of Glory is gone in Unto His Father’s side. 2. Thou art gone up before us, Lord, To make for us a place, That we may be where now Thou art, And look upon God’s face. 3. And ever on our earthly path A gleam of glory lies, A light still breaks behind the cloud That veiled Thee from our eyes. 4. Lift up our hearts, lift up our minds: Let Thy dear grace be giv’n; That, while we wander here below, Our treasure be in Heav’n. 5. That where Thou art, at God’s right hand, Our hope, our love, may be: Dwell Thou in us, that we may dwell Forevermore in Thee.

Break, Newborn Year

Author: Thomas H. Gill Meter: 8.6.8.6 Appears in 35 hymnals Matching Instances: 1 First Line: Break, newborn year, on glad eyes break Lyrics: 1. Break, newborn year, on glad eyes break, Melodious voices move; On, rolling time; thou canst not make The Father cease to love. 2. The parted year had wingèd feet; The Savior still doth stay; The new year comes; but Spirit sweet, Thou goest not away. 3. Our hearts in tears may oft run o’er; But Lord, Thy smile still beams; Our sins are swelling evermore, But pardoning grace still streams. 4. Lord, from this year more service win, More glory, more delight: O make its hours less sad with sin, Its days with Thee more bright. 5. Then we may bless its precious things If earthly cheer should come, Or gladsome mount on angel wings If Thou wouldst take us home. 6. O golden then the hours must be; The year must needs be sweet; Yes, Lord, with happy melody Thine opening grace we greet. Used With Tune: MIRFIELD Text Sources: Golden Chain, 1869, page 144

I Hate the Tempter and His Charms

Author: Isaac Watts Meter: 8.6.8.6 Appears in 48 hymnals Matching Instances: 1 Lyrics: 1. I hate the tempter and his charms, I hate his flattering breath; The serpent takes a thousand forms To cheat our souls to death. 2. He feeds our hope with airy dreams Or kills with slavish fear; And holds us still in wide extremes, Presumption or despair. 3. Now he persuades, How easy ’tis To walk the road to Heav’n; Anon he swells our sins, and cries, They cannot be forgiv’n. 4. He bids young sinners, Yet forbear To think of God, or death; For prayer and devotion are But melancholy breath. 5. He tells the aged, they must die, And ’tis too late to pray; In vain for mercy now they cry, For they have lost their day. 6. Thus he supports his cruel throne By mischief and deceit, And drags the sons of Adam down To darkness and the pit. 7. Almighty God, cut short his power; Let him in darkness dwell; And that he vex the earth no more, Confine him down to hell.

The earth, with all that dwell therein

Meter: 8.6.8.6 Appears in 10 hymnals Matching Instances: 1 Lyrics: 1 The earth, with all that dwell therein, With all its wealth untold, Belongs to God who founded it Upon the seas of old. 2 What man shall stand before the Lord On Zion's holy hill? The clean of hand, the pure of heart, The just who do his will. 3 Lo, such are they that seek for God, And blest by him they live; To them his perfect righteousness The God of grace will give. 4 Ye everlasting doors, give way, Lift up your heads, ye gates! For now, behold, to enter in The King of Glory waits. 5 Who is this glorious King that comes To claim his sovereign right? It is the Lord omnipotent, All conquering in his might. 6 Ye everlasting doors, give way, Lift up your heads, ye gates! For now, behold, to enter in The King of Glory waits. 7 Who is this glorious King that comes To claim his rightful throne? The Lord of hosts, he is the King Of Glory, God alone. Amen.
