136. Lift Up Your Heads, Ye Mighty Gates

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

2 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.

3 Redeemer, come, we open wide
Our hearts to Thee: here, Lord, abide.
Thine inner presence let us feel;
Thy grace and love in us reveal.
