1 When, in the gates of Zion,
Jesus appeared on earth,
Music, the temple filling,
Burst from the children forth.
Oh, to have joined that singing,
Oh, to have swelled the chord:
"Blessèd is He that cometh!
Blessèd is Christ, the Lord!"

2 Still, in the gates of Zion,
Jesus appears on earth,
Music and adoration
Burst from the children forth
Still may they join in singing,
Still may they swell the chord—
"Blessèd is He that cometh!
Blessèd is Christ, the Lord!"

3 Welcome the Sabbath morning!
Welcome the Gospel rays!
Welcome the Savior’s presence,
Welcome His feet with praise.
Join we the world’s sweet voices,
Singing the ancient chord—
"Blessèd is He that cometh!
Blessèd is Christ, the Lord!"
