Lift up your gates
Language: English  after the Latin 
Lift up your gates, princes, and be lifted up, eternal gates; 
and the king of glory shall come in.

Who is this king of glory? 
The Lord, strong and mighty in battle.

Who is this king of glory? 
The Lord of virtues himself is the king of glory.

Glory be to the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit; 
thus it was in the beginning and now and always; 
and shall be for ages of ages. 
Amen.
