128. Lift Up Your Heads

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 heav'n's employ,
Adorned with prayer, and love, and joy.

3. Redeemer, come, we open wide
Our hearts to Thee; here, Lord, abide:
Thine inner presence let us feel;
Thy grace and love in us reveal.
