3. THE PEARLY GATE

1. The night is dark, the storm is loud;
Beneath its force the trees are bow'd;
Yet still the pearly gate I see,
Where angels stand to welcome me.

Chorus:
To welcome me, to welcome me;
The angels stand to welcome me.

2. My heart is sad, deep sorrows roll,
Like streams of fire across my soul;
And yet the pearly gate I see,
Where angels stand to welcome me.
Chorus

3. With fears without, and foes within,
I seem almost subdued by sin;
And yet the pearly gate I see,
Where angels stand to welcome me.
Chorus

4. The road is rough, my feet are sore,
I long to have the journey o'er;
And yet the pearly gate I see,
Where angels stand to welcome me.
Chorus

5. My eyes are dim, and faint my breath,
Within me are the seeds of death;
But still the pearly gate I see,
Where angels stand to welcome me.
Chorus

6. When life is gone, and in my breast
All grief and fears are hushed to rest,
I hope the pearly gate to see,
Where angels stand to welcome me.
Chorus
