Meet Me at The Gate

My thoughts moved to the testimony of many a child of God when they closed the record of this life with the awareness of Jesus’ presence to escort them to glory. This is my prayer.

This is the gate of the LORD through which the righteous may enter. Psalms 118:20
This is the gate of heaven. Genesis 28:17

Refrain:
Meet me at the Gate, Dear Lord, Meet me at the Gate.
When the race is run, The battle won,
Meet me at the Gate.
Oh Lord, to see you standing there
My sole request, my only prayer.

Oh Lord, that blesséd touch of grace
When I have walked the way called strait
To see you in that heavenly place
Awaiting me beside the gate!

My hope alone in life and death,
If life is short or should I wait,
Through all my days and final breathe,
To see you standing at the gate.

Life’s sorrows in its final hour
Release their hold upon the soul
And every grief will lose its power
When finally You complete the scroll.

Life’s trials were a faithful friend
That I with widened eyes might see
Perhaps around just one more bend
A glorious welcome awaiting me.

To see the saints who went before
A joyous thought to celebrate
But now I long for nothing more
Than see you standing at the gate.

Refrain:
Meet me at the Gate, Dear Lord, Meet me at the Gate.
When the race is run, The battle won,
Meet me at the Gate.
Oh Lord, to see you standing there
My sole request, my only prayer.
