249. Heavenly Welcome

1 Feet that have carried the gospel glad,
Tidings of peace as the Savior said;
Hands that have strengthened the weak and sad,
Will be waiting there.

Refrain:
Those beautiful portals will open wide,
Open wide, open wide;
Those beautiful portals will open wide
To welcome thee.

2 Feet that have traveled the narrow way,
Faltering not in the battle fray,
Treading the thorns in the heat of day,
Will be waiting there. [Refrain]

3 Hands that were folded before thy view,
Pressed by thine own in a promise true,
Sprinkled with tears as the morning dew,
Will be waiting there. [Refrain]

4 Waiting and beckoning on and on,
Resting from toil in that palace home,
Eager to know will the children come
To these mansions fair. [Refrain]
