1 There is a gate that opens wide,
The beautiful golden gate,
‘Twas opened when the Saviour died,
The beautiful golden gate.

Refrain:
The beautiful golden gate,
Where heavenly angels wait,
You may accept the Saviour now
If you enter the golden gate.

2 Do you desire to enter thro’
The beautiful golden gate?
Repent, or you will never view
The beautiful golden gate. [Refrain]

3 Prepare, for soon the time will come,
To enter that golden gate,
Except ye be converted here,
None enter the golden gate. [Refrain]

4 How sad the words “too late, too late”
To enter the golden gate!
May they not seal your last estate,
Come enter the golden gate. [Refrain]

5 O would you walk the streets of gold,
Then enter the golden gate,
Would see the glory long foretold,
Then enter the golden gate. [Refrain]
