1 The glorious gates of righteousness
throw open unto me,
and I will come to them with praise
and enter thankfully;
and I will come to them with praise
and enter thankfully.

2 This is your temple gate, O LORD:
the just shall enter there.
My Savior, I will give you thanks,
for you have heard my prayer;
My Savior, I will give you thanks,
for you have heard my prayer.

3 The stone rejected and despised
is now the cornerstone.
How wondrous are the ways of God,
unfathomed and unknown;
how wondrous are the ways of God,
unfathomed and unknown.

4 Hosanna! Ever blest is he
who comes in God's own name.
The blessing of God's holy house
upon you we proclaim.
The blessing of God's holy house
upon you we proclaim.

5 O praise the LORD, for he is good;
let all in heaven above
and all his saints on earth proclaim
his everlasting love;
and all his saints on earth proclaim
his everlasting love.
