Representative Text

1 The Lord doth in His kingdom come;
Exalt and magnify His name;
Throw open heart and gate to Him,
And bring Him in with loud acclaim.

2 He comes to His inheritance,
Then praise and bless His royal name,
And open now your heart to Him,
And bring Him in with loud acclaim.

3 He brings the treasures of His grace,
He will our guilt and fear remove,
Will form us in His image fair,
Abounding in all good and love.

4 Admit Him in thy soul and heart,
That He may reign unrivaled there;
Cast our His every enemy,
Thy heart for His abode prepare.
