Lift Up Your Heads, Ye Mighty Gates

The United Methodist Hymnal Number 213
Text: Georg Weissel, 1590-1635; trans. by Catherine Winkworth, 1827-1878
Music: Psalmodia Evangelica
Tune: TRURO, Meter: LM

1. 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!

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, with us abide;
our hearts to thee we open wide;
let us thy inner presence feel;
thy grace and love in us reveal.

4. Thy Holy Spirit lead us on
until our glorious goal is won;
eternal praise, eternal fame
be offered, Savior, to thy name!
