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!
