    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
