CGS No.: 

Verse 1
The golden gates are lifted up,
The doors are opened wide;
The King of Glory is gone in
Unto His FATHER's side

Verse 2
Thou art gone up before us, Lord,
To make for us a place,
That we may be where now Thou art,
And see Thee face to face

Verse 3
And ever on our earthly path
A gleam of glory lies;
A light still breaks behind the cloud
That veiled Thee from our eyes

Verse 4
Lift up our hearts, lift up our minds;
Let Thy dear grace be given,
That, while we wander here below,
Our treasure be in Heaven

Verse 5
That where Thou art, at God's right Hand
Our hope, our love may be;
Dwell Thou in us, that we may dwell
For evermore in Thee
