Today your gate stands open,
And all who enter in
Shall find a Father's welcome
And pardon for their sin.
The past shall be forgotten,
A present joy be given,
A future home be promised,
A glorious crown in heav'n.

O all-embracing Mercy,
O ever-open Door,
What would I do without you
Who lead the way before?
When joy seems all too distant,
And all too near, despair,
I know one gate is open,
One ear will hear my pray'r.
