Psalm 24: Open

(To the tune Going Home)

Be raised up ancient doors,
And open wide, you gates!
Elders and sentinels,
The King of Glory waits.

Who is He? He who comes?
Who bids unbar our door?
God most high, Great and strong,
The Mighty Man of War.

Who ascends to God’s hill?
But Christ, whom none can kill.

Come, stand up, ancient doors,
Come open! Come salute!
Elders old, soldiers young,
Come hear your Lover’s suite.

Who is He? He who calls?
Who bids unbar our door?
Jesus Christ, Glorious King,
Our Bridegroom, Priest and Lord.

Hear His call, wait on Him,
And let your Savior in!
