Macht hoch die Tür

German Advent Calendar Day 3

Macht hoch die Tür

This is a hymn from the 17th century. Written by the Prussian vicar Georg Weissel, the hymn is losely based on Psalm 24 “Machet die Tore weit und die Türen in der Welt hoch, dass der König der Ehren einziehe!“ (“Fling wide the gates, open the ancient doors, and the great king will come in.” Good News Bible)

It is also the first hymn in the protestant hymn book and a favourite hymn for Advent.

 I found a version on Youtube with the lyrics, hope you enjoy it!
