When the Gate Swings Open
Through this world we keep on toiling,
Toiling through the storm and rain,
Watching and patiently waiting,
Until the Saviour comes again.
I am coming, Lord, trusting in thy word,
Keep me from the paths of sin, hide me in thy love,
Hide me in thy love, write my name above,
When the gates swing open, let me in.
Keep me fit for service,
Keep me up on every hand,
I've stood many a trial,
Some day I will understand
Tired of this load I'm carryin',
Tired of this world of sin,
Angels in Heaven beckon,
My weary soul to come in.
