Hymnary Friends,

Please pardon this brief interruption, and please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. Here's why.

Each month half a million people visit this website for free access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet. But this project does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. Twice a year we hold a fund drive, and these drives are critical to our future.

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure giving site. Or you can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.
Harry Plantinga

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]
