Representative Text

1 Let the gates of praise be open,
Sounding forth the joy within;
Shout and sing, the Lord hath spoken—
For He saves and keeps from sin.

Praise Him in the sanctuary,
Praise Him in our song and prayer;
Praise Him, day and night adore Him,
Praise Him, praise Him everywhere. [Refrain]

2 When our hearts are full of gladness,
Which we joyfully proclaim,
How it cheers the sad and lonely!
How it magnifies His name! [Refrain]

3 Praise Him when the heart is heavy
For His children near or far;
Joyfully we’ll bear their burden
To our God who answers prayer. [Refrain]

4 When the clouds above us hover,
And the hosts of hell are near,
Shout His praises, hallelujah!
Christ will make them disappear. [Refrain]

5 Praise Him for the love He’s given,
Praise Him while He lendeth breath;
Praise Him round the throne in heaven,
Praise Him through the vale of death. [Refrain]
