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.

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]
