22. The Glorious Gates of Righteousness

1 The glorious gates of righteousness
Throw open unto me,
And I will enter them with praise,
O Lord, my God, to Thee,
And I will enter them with praise,
O Lord, my God, to Thee.

2 This is Thy temple gate, O Lord,
The just shall enter there;
My Savior, I will give Thee thanks,
O Thou that hearest prayer,
My Savior, I will give Thee thanks,
O Thou that hearest prayer.

3 The stone rejected and despised
Is now the cornerstone;
How wondrous are the ways of God,
Unfathomed and unknown!
How wondrous are the ways of God,
Unfathomed and unknown!

4 In this the day that Thou hast made
Triumphantly we sing;
Send now prosperity, O Lord,
O Lord, salvation bring,
Send now prosperity, O Lord,
O Lord, salvation bring.

5 Hosanna! Ever blest be He
That cometh in God's name,
The blessing of the House of God
Upon you we proclaim,
The blessing of the House of God
Upon you we proclaim.

Amen.
