Sweeping Through the Gates

I am now a child of God, I've been 4 washed in Jesus' 1 blood
I am watching and I'm longing while I 5 wait
Soon on 1 wings of love I'll fly, to a 4 home beyond the 1 sky
To my welcome, I'll go 5 sweeping through the 1 gates

4 Sweeping through the 1 gates, Sweeping through the 5 gates
In the 1 blood of Calvary's Lamb, saved from 4 every stain I 1 have...
Hallelujah, I'll go 5 sweeping through the 1 gates

Oh, the blessed Lord of light, now upholds me by His might
And his arms enfold and comfort while I wait
I am leaning on His breast, oh the sweetness of this rest
Hallelujah, I'll go sweeping through the gates

I'll go sweeping through the gates, where the blessed for me wait
Where the weary workers rest forever more
When the strife on earth is done, and the crown of life is won
Oh the glory of that city just before

Christ will burst these prison bars, and I'll soar beyond the stars
To my Father's house, the bright and blessed estate
When the morn eternal breaks, and the song immortal wakes
Washed in Jesus' blood, I'll sweep on through the gates
