Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

So before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary going.

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by clicking the Donate button below, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,
Harry Plantinga

Go through the gates, 'tis God commands

Go through the gates, 'tis God commands

Published in 8 hymnals

Full Text

1 Go through the gates ('tis God commands)
Workers with God, the charge obey,
Remove whate'er his work withstands,
Prepare, prepare his people's way.

2 Lift up for all mankind to see
The standard of their Saviour god,
And point them to the shameful tree,
The cross all stain'd with hallow'd blood.

3 Sion, thy suffering Prince behold,
Thy Saviour and Salvation too,
He comes, he comes, so long foretold,
Cloth'd in a vest of bloody hue.

4 Himself prepares his people's hearts,
Breaks and binds up, and wounds and heals,
A mystic death and life imparts,
Empties the full, the emptied fills.

5 He fills whom first he hath prepar'd,
With him all needful grace is given,
Himself is here their great reward,
Their future and their present heaven.
