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

683. He the Pearly Gates Will Open

1 Love divine, so great and wondrous,
deep and mighty, pure, sublime,
coming from the heart of Jesus--
just the same thro' tests of time.

[Refrain:]
He the pearly gates will open,
so that I may enter in;
for he purchased my redemption,
and forgave me all my sin.

2 Like a dove when hunted, frightened,
as a wounded fawn was I,
brokenhearted, yet he healed me--
he will heed the sinner’s cry. (Refrain)

3 Love divine, so great and wondrous--
all my sins he then forgave;
I will sing his praise forever,
for his blood, his power to save. (Refrain)

4 In life’s eventide, at twilight,
at his door I’ll knock and wait;
by the precious love of Jesus,
I shall enter heaven’s gate. (Refrain)
