1 Faith reveals in untold beauty,
What no mortal eye can see;
‘Tis a vision fair and glorious,
Of the gates ajar for me.
Gates ajar, gates ajar, of that city I see,
As I sail upon the billows of Times resistless sea;
“Yes, I think I see that city, and the lighthouse on the shore,”
And I hear the angels singing thro’ the gates ajar.
O come angel band,
Come and around me stand;
O bear me away on your snowy wings
To my immortal home.
2 Lord, I know I am not worthy
Of myself, to be Thine own,
But I know Thou wilt not fail me,
When I kneel before Thy throne. [Refrain]
3 Fearless when I wait the boatman,
Who shall bear me o’er the sea,
To that fair and blessed harbor,
With its gats ajar for me. [Refrain]
