The gates of glory lifted are

Representative Text

1 The gates of glory lifted are,
But who, then, passeth in?
The lowly One who, on the cross,
Redeemed mankind from sin.
Lift up your heads, ye gates, lift up,
Be ever lifted high;
Bid welcome unto him who comes,
The mighty Lord draws nigh.

Jesus our King passeth in
The high, uplifted gates;
There, by the throne of our God,
For those who come he waits.
He is the King of glory,
He is the King of glory,
The Lord of hosts, The mighty One,
He is the King of Glory.

2 The gates of glory lifted are,
But who has entered in--
A King in royal raiment clad
The fear of serfs to win?
But who, then, is the mighty One
That angel choirs should sing?
'Tis he who conquered death and sin,
The mighty Lord, the King. [Chorus]

3 The gates of glory lifted are,
The King has entered there;
Not royal sceptre his to wield,
But love beyond compare.
Ye men, look up, the broken reed
Is healed with strength anew;
The staff, despised, is clad in might,
It is, O man, for you! [Chorus]

4 The gates of glory lifted are,
What concourse draweth near?
Who follow where the Master led
In raiment bright appear.
Behold, redeemed of earth are they,
The purged and purified;
By cross he bore the way appears
To lead them to his side. [Chorus]
