Fling Wide The Gates O Church


Fling wide thy gates, O Church,
Thy door, O weary heart!
Behold, the King of glory comes,
And never would depart!

O Zion, rise and shine!
No more by sin enticed;
The night is spent, and brightly dawns
The day of Jesus Christ!

Behold, saith He, I stand
And knock at ev’ry door,
And where I enter with My light,
There darkness reigns no more.

Come in, dear Lord, we pray,
Come in, Thou Blessed One,
That henchforth, in each word and deed,
Thy bidding may be done.

Amen.
