Representative Text

1 Lift up your heads, O eternal gates!
Lift up, ye doors, for the King who awaits,
Clothed in His beauty and armed with might,
Crowned with salvation and glory and light!

Lift your heads, eternal gates!
Christ the King of glory will enter in!

2 Unto the captive proclaim release,
Unto the warrior the tidings of peace;
High over all will His banner wave,
Strong to deliver and mighty to save! [Refrain]

3 Blessed Redeemer desired so long!
Welcome Him now with a jubilant song;
He is our ransom from death and sin;
Lift up your heads, let the King enter in! [Refrain]
