At the Golden Gates 476

Tune: C. E. Taylor, 1949
Meter: 8s,7s (8,7,8,7)
At the golden gates of glory,
Clad in garments pure and white,
See our loved and lost stand waiting,
To receive us into light.


They are waiting for you and me,
Yes, they are waiting for you and me.

There they tell the old, old story,
Of the dying Savior's love,
How He went up to Mount Calv'ry,
How for us His life He gave.


Now so peacefully they are resting,
On their loving Savior's breast,
For in Jesus' blood they trusted,
While they lived upon the earth.

C. E. Taylor, of Troy, Alabama, dated this song June 1, 1949.
