Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

So before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary going.

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by clicking the Donate button below, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,
Harry Plantinga

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]
