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.

Representative Text

1 There is a city made by God,
Whose streets are paved with gold;
The glory of that heav’nly place
By prophets has been told.
Then be prepared to meet thy God,
To pass through the golden gate.
The King of kings is ruler there,
He guards the golden gate.

Is there any one here who is not prepared to enter the golden gate?
Be ready, for soon the time will come to enter that golden gate.
Don’t let it be said, too late, too late, to enter that golden gate;
Be ready for soon the time will come to enter that golden gate.
That beautiful golden gate,
That beautiful golden gate,
Be ready, for soon the time will come to enter that golden gate.

2 There is a mansion bright and fair,
In that celestial place,
For those who turn from all their sin
And trust His pard’ning grace.
Then turn to Christ without delay,
Oh, come for the hour is late,
The King of kings is calling you,
Inside the golden gate. [Refrain]
