Heart of Jesus, house of God and gate of heaven, have mercy on us ...
Come, the gate has opened wide.
Such a heart has room for all.
Here's the home so long desired.
Say a prayer and pass inside.
Come, the gate is barred for none.
Call your family, call your foe,
bid them join you in new life,
bid them seek God's only son.
Look beyond the gate where they
stand and pray and wait for you--
all you loved and thought you lost
lies but one strong step away.
