Click to listen to the music of Gates Of The Beautiful and sing along!

Gates of the beautiful, golden and bright
Guarding that city of splendor and light;
Oft I behold thee, in distance and dream
Flash in the sunlight of heavenly gleam.

Refrain:
Gates ajar for me
Beautiful gates ajar for me;
City of gold with joys untold
Beautiful gates ajar for me.

Gates of the beautiful, lofty and grand
Swung by the touch of some bright angel hand
Down form the portals there floats a sweet song
Waked by the lips of the purified throng.

Refrain:
Gates ajar for me
Beautiful gates ajar for me;
City of gold with joys untold
Beautiful gates ajar for me.

Gates of the beautiful, gates of pure gold
How can I picture your glories untold?
Eagerly yearning my spirit doth wait
Till I shall come to the beautiful gate.

Refrain:
Gates ajar for me
Beautiful gates ajar for me;
City of gold with joys untold
Beautiful gates ajar for me.
