1 Fling wide the gates, O Jerusalem,
Let the King of glory in;
Fling wide the gates, to the King of kings,
Open wide and bid Him enter in;
Fling wide the gates, O Jerusalem,
To the King in all His glory;
Fling wide the gates of pearl,
Let the King come in.

Refrain:
Fling wide the gates,
fling wide the gates,
Fling wide the gates,
And let the King of glory in,
And let the King come in,
And let the King come in.

2 Fling wide the gates, O ye sinful heart,
Let the King of glory in;
Fling wide the gates, let Him not depart,
Open wide and bid Him enter in;
Fling wide the gates, He is knocking still,
Waiting in His kingly splendor;
Fling wide the gates, O soul,
Let the King come in. [Refrain]

3 Fling wide the gates to the royal call,
Bid Him enter while you may;
Fling wide the gates, give Him welcome, all,
As He waits admission here today;
Fling wide the gates, let Him enter in,
He will sup with thee forever;
Fling wide the gates, O soul,
Let the King come in. [Refrain]
