Hymns Of The Apostolic Church by John Brownlie

Now let the gates be lifted up,

tr., John Brownlie


Now let the gates be lifted up,

That Christ may enter in,

Who drank for man the bitter cup,

And crushed the power of sin;

He enters, lo! a Victor brave,

Triumphant from the yawning grave.


Did death and hell their power unite

To hold their prize? in vain;

For morn awoke upon the night,

And death and hell were slain;

All hail the Victor from the grave,

Who rose from death our souls to save.


Now let the Christ His right assume, --

The throne of high renown;

No more do thorns His temples fret,

He wears a regal crown; --

Up, myriad hosts, your praises bring,

And laud the All-victorious King.


To God the Father, God the Son,

And God the Spirit blest,

Be glory while the ages run,

By angel hosts exprest;

And souls from death's dark bondage won,

By Christ, the All-victorious Son.
