THE BEAUTIFUL GATE (Song Lyrics)

Rose
To the right, to the left
To the left, to the right
Whichever way you turn
Freedom is out of sight

Are you looking for love
Everywhere where there’s none
Searching for happiness
Where they offer fake fun?

Chorus
Look straight ahead
To the beautiful gate
It’s covered in roses
And blooms in delight
’Cause the one holding onto
Thorns of loss, pain and tears
Can be washed and redeemed
By His precious, sweet blood

It’s time to stop running
It’s time to know the truth
It’s time to let go and
Be filled with strength and youth

Don’t let your eyes be caught
With lures of fleeting charm
That promise nothing but
Empty hopes bringing harm

Chorus
Look straight ahead
To the beautiful gate
It’s covered in roses
And blooms in delight
’Cause the one holding onto
Thorns of loss, pain and tears
Can be washed and redeemed
By His precious, sweet blood

Did you look straight ahead
To the beautiful gate
Did you see the roses
Blooming in delight
Have you let go of those
Hindering thorns
Have you been washed and redeemed
By His precious, sweet blood?

Let the fragrance of heaven’s Rose
Wash right over you
Stand upon that beautiful gate
And find yourself anew
Only He can bring you through
Through and so complete
Through in perfect wholeness
To stand at the Redeemer’s feet

Tell me
Have you been washed and redeemed
By His precious, sweet blood?

Have you been washed and redeemed
By His precious, sweet blood?

  1. Someday, we will walk through that gate with our hand in our redeemer’s hand: heaven at last! A beautiful picture of our hope in Jesus Christ. And more than a picture, I can smell the sweet fragrance of flowers.
