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)
