1. Awake our souls and bless his name,
Whose mercies never fail;
Who opens wide a door of hope,
In Anchor's gloomy vale.
Behold the portal wide displayed,
The buildings strong and fair;
Within are pastures fresh and green,
And living streams are there.
2. Enter my soul with cheerful haste,
For Jesus is the door;
Nor fear the serpent's wily arts,
Nor fear the lion's roar.
O may thy grace the nations lead,
And Jews and Gentiles come,
All trav'ling in one narrow path,
To one eternal home.
