The Glorious Gates of Righteousness

  1. The glorious gates of righteousness
    throw open unto me,
    and I will enter them with praise,
    O LORD, my God, to thee,
    and I will enter them with praise,
    O LORD, my God, to thee.
  2. This is thy temple gate, O LORD,
    the just shall enter there.
    My Savior, I will give thee thanks,
    O thou that hearest prayer;
    my Savior, I will give thee thanks,
    O thou that hearest prayer.
  3. The stone rejected and despised
    is now the cornerstone;
    how wondrous are the ways of God,
    unfathomed and unknown;
    how wondrous are the ways of God,
    unfathomed and unknown!
  4. In this the day that thou hast made,
    triumphantly we sing;
    send now prosperity, O LORD;
    O LORD, salvation bring;
    send now prosperity, O LORD;
    O LORD, salvation bring.
  5. Hosanna! Ever blest is he
    that cometh in God’s name.
    The blessing of our Savior’s house
    upon you we proclaim;
    the blessing of our Savior’s house
    upon you we proclaim.
  6. The light of joy to shine on us
    the LORD our God has made;
    now be the precious sacrifice
    upon his altar laid;
    now be the precious sacrifice
    upon his altar laid.
  7. O LORD, my God, I praise thy name,
    all other names above;
    O give him thanks, for he is good,
    and boundless is his love;
    O give him thanks, for he is good,
    and boundless is his love.
  8. O praise the LORD, for he is good;
    let all in heav’n above
    and all the saints on earth proclaim
    his everlasting love,
    and all the saints on earth proclaim
    his everlasting love.
