Hymnary Friends,

Please pardon this brief interruption, and please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. Here's why.

Each month half a million people visit this website for free access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet. But this project does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. Twice a year we hold a fund drive, and these drives are critical to our future.

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure giving site. Or you can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.
Harry Plantinga

160. The Paradise of God

1 There’s a home, a blessed home,
In that fair land above,
Where peace and happiness abound,—
The Paradise of Love.

Chorus:
This blessed home our gracious Lord,
Has purchased with His blood,
That we might enter through the gates
The Paradise of God.

2 There’s a home, a heavenly home,
In fadeless verdure dressed,
Where toil and labor are no more,—
The Paradise of Rest. [Chorus]

3 There’s a home, a blessed home,
Where care and sorrow cease,
Where sin and sickness never come,—
The Paradise of Peace. [Chorus]

4 In this home, this peaceful home,
Are all the saints of God,
Who washed their robes, and made them white—
In Jesus’ precious blood. [Chorus]
