108. Lift up your heads, ye gates! and wide

1 Lift up your heads, ye gates! and wide
Your everlasting doors display;
Ye angel-guards, like flames divide,
And give the King of glory way.

2 Who is the King of glory?--He,
The Lord, omnipotent to save;
Whose own right arm, in victory,
Led captive Death, and spoiled the grave.

3 Lift up your heads, ye gates! and high
Your everlasting portals heave;
Welcome the King of glory nigh:
Him must the heaven of heavens receive.

4 Who is the King of glory--who?
The Lord of hosts; behold his name:
The kingdom, power, and honor due,
Yield him, ye saints, with glad acclaim!
