Hymnary Friends,

As our fall/winter fund drive winds down, please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. We're behind where we have been in past years with this drive, and we are hoping to catch up a little between now and January 1, 2019!

Please know that we want to keep Hymnary (the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet) going for many years to come. Your donations help us do that. 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

845. Sweet Paradise

1 Sweet paradise! my future home,
The place of all the free;
Where never-fading flowers bloom—
I long to dwell in thee.

Refrain:
Sweet paradise, sweet paradise,
I long to rest my soul in thee;
Sweet paradise, sweet paradise,
Waiting, waiting for all the free.

2 Sweet paradise! where we shall meet,
And with our Savior reign,
Beyond the final judgment seat,
Where comes no sinful stain. [Refrain]

3 Sweet paradise! no night can fall
On thy resplendent shore;
Celestial day shines over all,
And shall forevermore. [Refrain]

4 Sweet paradise! oh, joys untold!
’Tis there I long to fly,
Where worlds of pleasure will unfold,
Where man shall never die. [Refrain]
