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]
