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!

Refrain:
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]
