THE GATES ARE OPEN WIDE 224
Wrote Charles Sorley...
"The gates are open on the road
that leads to beauty and to God."
No walls, no matter how thick
No fences, no matter how high
No guards, no matter how many
Can keep us encumbered or bound
If our hearts are right with God.
If our hearts are right with God
Those walls become thresholds
Those fences become rose trellises
Those guards become our friends
For no chains may fetter
The upward bound soul
God's gates are always open wide
To all those who would enter in
