Going through the gates: May 28, 2017

A Strathroy United Church tradition since the 1920’s.

Open the Gates

Open the gates for the children today

Help them to walk in the love lighted way.

Welcome each one to our Sunday school class.

Open the gates wide and pray as they pass.


Open the gates and welcome them all,

Each new beginner so precious, so small.

Open the gates open the gates,

the gates of love and gladness.

We would that these children grow into youth,

To worship the Lord in spirit and truth.

Live in His presence with clear, tranquil minds.

Joyfully serve Him and let His light shine.
