Words: Georg Weissel Translated from German to English by Catherine Winkworth Music: “Truro,” Williams’ Psalmodia Evangelica From: Guitar Picker - www.gospelmusic.org.uk Lift Up Your Heads, Ye Mighty Gates D G A7 D Lift up your heads, ye mighty gates; A7 D Behold, the King of glory waits; E A D A7 The King of kings is drawing near; D G D A7 D The Saviour of the world is here! A Helper just He comes to thee, His chariot is humility, His kingly crown is holiness, His scepter, pity in distress. O blest the land, the city blest, Where Christ the Ruler is confessed! O happy hearts and happy homes To whom this King in triumph comes! 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. 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. Thy Holy Spirit lead us on Until our glorious goal is won; Eternal praise, eternal fame Be offered, Saviour, to Thy Name!Home
