Erect your heads, eternal gates,
Unfold to entertain
The king of glory, see he comes
With his celestial train.
Erect your heads, eternal gates,
Unfold to entertain
The king of glory, see,he comes
he come, see he comes,
With his eternal train.

Who is this king of glory?
Who is this king of glory?
Who? Who?
The Lord for strength renown'd,
for strength renown'd;
In battle mighty;
in battle mighty, o'er his foes,
Eternal victor crown'd.
In battle mighty, oe'r his foes,
Eternal victor crown'd.

Erect your heads ye gates, unfold
In state to entertain
The king of glory,see he comes,
With all his shining train.

Who is this king of glory?
Who? who? who?
The Lord of hosts renown'd;
Of glory he alone is king,
Who is with glory crown'd.
Of glory he alone is king,
Who is with glory crown'd.

Harmonia Americana, 1791
