1 At the golden gate of prayer I wait,
The Lord my King addressing,
Till He draw near my suit to hear,
And grant His royal blessing.

Refrain:
Golden gate, golden gate,
The golden gate of prayer;
Watch and wait, watch and wait,
The Lord will meet me there.

2 For the King I seek is kind and meek,
Tho' He is high and holy;
He knows us well, and loves to dwell
With humble hearts and lowly. [Refrain]

3 At the golden gate of prayer I wait,
In God’s own way appointed,
Till He in grace unveil His face
In Christ, His own Anointed. [Refrain]
