“Lift Up Your Heads, Ye Mighty Gates” is an Advent hymn composed originally in German that paraphrases closely Psalm 24:7-10. It refers to God entering the Temple and filling it with glory. Not surprisingly this Scripture becomes associated with Jesus as Messiah and Lord. You may not be familiar with it or associate it with Christmas songs. In many churches that observe the Advent Season, it is a staple for celebrating the coming of Jesus. This is the third Sunday in Advent. Pastor McCoy looks forward to sharing this song with you as we prepare ourselves for this special time of year.
