At the beautiful gate

Representative Text

1 I think I should mourn o’er my sorrowful fate,
If sorrow in heaven can be,
If no one should be at the beautiful gate,
There waiting and watching for me.

Refrain:
Yes, waiting and watching for me,
Yes, waiting and watching for me;
May many of those at the beautiful gate,
Be waiting and watching for me.

2 How sadly I’d feel in the heavenly state,
If sadness in heaven can be,
If no one should be at the beautiful gate,
Conducted to glory by me. [Refrain]

3 O Lord, I beseech Thee for wisdom and grace,
In winning lost souls unto Thee,
That many may be in that beautiful place,
A crown of rejoicing to me. [Refrain]
