The Golden Gates

The golden gates were open

And heavenly Angels smiled

And with their tuneful harp string

Welcomed the little child.

They shouted “high and holy”

A child has entered in,

And safe from all temptation

A soul is sealed from sin.

They led him through the golden streets

On to the King of King’s,

And a glory fell upon him

From the rustling of their wings.

The Savior smiled upon him

As none on earth had smiled,

And Heaven’s great glory shone around him

The little earth-born child.

On earth they missed the little one,

They mourned and wept and sighed,

And wondered if another such

As theirs had ever died.

Oh! had they seen through those high gates

The welcome to him given,

They never would have wished their child

Back from his home in Heaven.
