1 Swing open thy gates, O Jerusalem,
For our Savior’s blood has been shed!
The promise lies yet in the future years,
When we all shall rise from the dead!

Refrain:
Swing open the beautiful gates of Heav’n,
The gates by the crystal sea!
Swing open the beautiful gates of Heav’n!
Swing open the gates for me!

2 Swing open the gates of the pearly hue,
The Savior is waiting within,
To welcome the homecoming throng of earth,
Who have been redeemed from all sin! [Refrain]

3 Swing open thy gates, city beautiful,
With thy wondrous pavements of gold!
The loved ones thou hast
With their foreheads crowned,
And their forms we long to behold. [Refrain]

4 Swing open thy gates, O Jerusalem,
For the Savior’s blood has been shed!
The promise lies yet in the future years,
When we all shall rise from the dead! [Refrain]
