1 The golden gates are lifted up,
the doors are opened wide;
the King of glory is gone in
unto his Father's side.
2 Thou art gone up before us, Lord,
to make for us a place,
that we may be where now thou art,
and look upon God's face.
3 And ever on our earthly path
a gleam of glory lies,
a light still breaks behind the cloud
that veiled thee from our eyes.
4 Lift up our hearts, lift up our minds:
let thy dear grace be giv'n,
that, while we wander here below,
our treasure be in heav'n;
5 That where thou art, at God's right hand,
our hope, our love, may be:
dwell thou in us, that we may dwell
forevermore in thee.
