Gates of Praise.
Lift up the Gates of Praise,
That we may enter in,
And o'er salvation's walls proclaim
That Christ redeems from sin.
Cho. -- The stars may praise the hand
That decks the sky above,
But man alone can tell the pow'r
Of Christ's redeeming love.
2 God's works reveal his might,
His majesty and grace;
But not the tender Father's love
That saves a dying race.
3 Then let the voice of praise
To heavenly courts ascend,
Till with the songs the angels sing
Our hallelujahs blend.
4 To him that hath redeemed
Our souls from sin's dark maze;
The Hope and Savior of mankind,
Be everlasting praise.
M. E. Servoss.
