Theme: Advent

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! I open wide
    My heart to Thee; here, Lord, abide.
    Let me Thy inner presence feel;
    Thy grace and love in me reveal.
