Heaven’s Gates

You exchanged the joy of Heaven
For the suffering of the cross
And the presence of Your Father
For the friendship of the lost

You took on the form of servant
All Your Godly glory veiled
For this broken world submitted
To the cross, the thorns, the nails

Now we know there was no other way
To release this world from sin
You endured the cross, despised the shame
Opened Heaven’s gates
Opened Heaven’s gates
So that we might enter in

You opened the gates of Heaven
You opened the gates of Heaven
And now we’re free to enter in
