Hymnary Friends,

As our fall/winter fund drive winds down, please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. We're behind where we have been in past years with this drive, and we are hoping to catch up a little between now and January 1, 2019!

Please know that we want to keep Hymnary (the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet) going for many years to come. Your donations help us do that. 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

Representative Text

1 There is a gate that opens wide,
The beautiful golden gate,
‘Twas opened when the Saviour died,
The beautiful golden gate.

Refrain:
The beautiful golden gate,
Where heavenly angels wait,
You may accept the Saviour now
If you enter the golden gate.

2 Do you desire to enter thro’
The beautiful golden gate?
Repent, or you will never view
The beautiful golden gate. [Refrain]

3 Prepare, for soon the time will come,
To enter that golden gate,
Except ye be converted here,
None enter the golden gate. [Refrain]

4 How sad the words “too late, too late”
To enter the golden gate!
May they not seal your last estate,
Come enter the golden gate. [Refrain]

5 O would you walk the streets of gold,
Then enter the golden gate,
Would see the glory long foretold,
Then enter the golden gate. [Refrain]
