Lift Up the Gates 250

Lift up the Gates of Praise,
That we may enter in,
And o’er salvation’s walls proclaim
That Christ redeems from sin.

[Refrain]
The stars may praise the hand
That decks the sky above,
But man alone can tell the pow’r
Of Christ’s redeeming love.

God’s works reveal his might,
His majesty and grace,
But not the tender Father’s love
That saves  a dying race.
[Refrain]

To Him that hath redeemed
Our souls from sin’s dark maze,
The Hope and Savior of mankind
Be everlasting praise!
[Refrain]

Then let the voice, the voice of praise
To heav’nly courts ascend,
Till with the songs the angels sing
Our hallelujahs blend.
[Refrain]

To Him that hath redeemed
Our souls from sin’s dark maze,
The Hope and Savior of mankind
Be everlasting praise!
– by Mary Elizabeth Servoss
