318. Thoughts for the Sanctuary



1. The glorious gates of righteousness
Throw open unto me,
And I will enter them with praise,
O Lord, my God, to Thee. 

2. This is Thy templegate, O Lord,
The just shall enter there;
My Saviour, 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!

4. In this the day that Thou hast made
Triumphantly we sing;
Send now prosperity, O Lord,
O Lord, salvation bring.

5. Hosanna! Ever blest be He
That cometh in God's Name,
The blessing of Jehovah's house
Upon you we proclaim.

6. The light of joy to shine on us
The Lord our God hath made;
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.
