We ask for donations here just twice a year, and this is one of those times. So, before you hit the "close" button on this box, would you consider a donation to keep Hymnary.org going? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Last month, our Hymnary website had almost 1 million visitors from around the world: people like you who love hymns. To serve our users well takes money, and we have limited sources of revenue. This fund drive is one such source.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546, or you can click the Donate button below. From the entire Hymnary.org team, our grateful thanks.

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]
