1Ye gates, lift up your heads on high;
Ye doors that last for aye,
Be lifted up, that so the King
Of glory enter may.
2But Who of glory is the King?
The mighty Lord is this;
Even that same Lord, that great in might
And strong in battle is.
3Ye gates, lift up your heads on high;
Ye doors that last for aye,
Be lifted up, that so the King
Of glory enter may.
4But Who is He that is the King
Of glory? Who is this?
The Lord of Hosts, and none but He,
The King of glory is. Amen.
Psalm24:7Lift up your heads, O ye gates; and be ye lift up, ye everlasting doors; and the King of glory shall come in.
