HE LOCKED THE GATES

Rodney Griffin

ONE DAY I HEARD A PREACHER PREACH
HE SAID THIS WORLD WE’RE GONNA LEAVE
AND WHEN WE DIE WE’LL EITHER GO
TO HEAV’N ABOVE OR HELL BELOW
I BOWED MY HEAD CONFESSED MY SIN
INVITED JESUS TO COME IN
THE SAVIOR TURNED ME FROM THE FLAMES
AND WITH A WORD HE LOCKED THE GATES

HE LOCKED THE GATES OF HELL BEHIND ME
AND THEN HE THREW THE KEYS AWAY
HE LOCKED THE GATES, O GIVE HIM GLORY
THERE’LL NEVER COME A DAY
I’LL HAVE TO ENTER SUCH A PLACE
FOR THE DAY THAT I GOT SAVED
HE LOCKED THE GATES

NOW I LIVE A LIFE SO FREE
KNOWING JESUS LIVES IN ME
AND WHEN I FAIL I PLEAD THE BLOOD
ALIVE AND WELL IT’S STILL ENOUGH
THEN WHEN THE DEVIL COMES MY WAY
AND SAYS IN HELL FOR SIN I’LL PAY
I POINT HIM TO A RUGGED HILL
AND SAY THANKS TO JESUS I NEVER WILL

HE LOCKED THE GATES OF HELL BEHIND ME
AND THEN HE THREW THE KEYS AWAY
HE LOCKED THE GATES, O GIVE HIM GLORY
THERE’LL NEVER COME A DAY
I’LL HAVE TO ENTER SUCH A PLACE
FOR THE DAY THAT I GOT SAVED
HE LOCKED THE GATES
