Today's great hymn

|

(sung to the tune Truro....go to www.cyberhymnal.org to hear the MIDI if you can't remember it!)

Lift up your heads, ye mighty gates;
Behold, the King of glory waits;
The King of kings is drawing near;
The Savior of the world is here!

O blest the land, the city blest,
Where Christ the Ruler is confessed!
O happy hearts and happy homes
To whom this King in triumph comes!

Fling wide the portals of your heart;
Make it a temple, set apart
From earthly use for heavenís employ,
Adorned with prayer and love and joy.

Redeemer, come, I open wide
My heart to thee: here, Lord abide.
Let me Thy inner presence feel;
Thy grace and love in me reveal.

So come, my Sovereign; enter in!
Let new and nobler life begin;
Thy Holy Spirit guide us on,
Until the glorious crown be won.
