Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

So before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary going.

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by clicking the Donate button below, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,
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]
