Lift Up Your Heads, Ye Mighty Gates

Words: Based on Psalm 24:7
Georg Weissel, translated from German to English by Catherine Winkworth
Music: Thomas Williams [Truro].


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 blessed the land, the city blessed
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 heaven's employ,
Adorned with prayer and love and joy.

So come, my Sov'reign, enter in!
Let new and nobler live begin
Thy Holy Spirit lead us on
Until our glorious goal is won;
