Full Text

1 Thro’ the gates of the city they are passing, one by one,
The redeemed who have conquered, and whose lives have just begun;
For the Lord their Redeemer at the shining portals stands,
And appoints them their mansions in the house not made with hands.

Refrain:
From the soul’s happy resting,
Nevermore will they roam,
Never more will they sorrow;
They are home, gathered home.

2 Thro’ the gates of the city they have entered, one by one,
They who toiled for the Master, and whose harvest work is done;
They who sowed to the spirit, and have reaped a rich reward,
Come with sheaves bright and golden, singing glory to the Lord. [Refrain]

3 When the night falls upon us, and our vineyard work is done,
Thro’ the gates of the city may we enter, one by one;
May the Lord keep us faithful till the storms of life are past,
That we lost not the glory when the journey ends at last. [Refrain]
