136. The Gate of Pearl

1 There is a Gate of shining pearl,
Beyond the silent river,
And happy souls who enter there,
Shall dwell with Christ forever.

Amazing love! oh, can it be
That gate is open now for me?
For me, for me?
Stands open now for me?

2, There is a land whose radiant sky
With constant light is glowing;
And all along its verdant shore,
The tide of joy is flowing.

Amazing love! oh, can it be
A land so pure and bright for me?
For me, for me?
So pure and bright for me?

3 To every soldier of the Cross,
The prospect, oh, how cheering;
There is a crown laid up for those
Who wait our Lord's appearing.

Amazing love! oh, can it be
There is a crown laid up for me?
For me, for me?
A crown laid up for me?

4 The blood of him who died for all—
Oh, wondrous, wondrous story!
His blood that cleanseth every sin,
Secures that land of glory.

Amazing love! oh, can it be
His blood secures that land for me?
For me, for me?
Secures that land for me?
