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.

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]
