Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

So before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary going.

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. So if you benefit from, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by clicking the Donate button below, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,

Strait [straight] is the gate to heaven above

Full Text

1 Straight is the gate to heaven above,
And narrow is the way;
Yet there is room in God's great love
For thee, for thee alway,
For thee, for thee alway.

2 In Paradise there still is room,
There still is room for thee;
For thee the Savior hath a home,
Where heavenly mansions be,
Where heavenly mansions be.

3 Though thousand times ten thousands stand
White-robed in glory there,
There is a place at God's right hand
For thee in heaven so fair,
For thee in heaven so fair.

4 In Jesus' heart there still is room,
In heaven is room also,
The gospel message bids thee come,
Praise God who loves thee, too,
Praise God who loves thee, too.

5 Now God be praised, who even me
A glorious diadem
Will grant when I His glory see
In His Jerusalem,
In His Jerusalem.
