Hymnary Friends,

Please pardon this brief interruption, and please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. Here's why.

Each month half a million people visit this website for free access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet. But this project does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. Twice a year we hold a fund drive, and these drives are critical to our future.

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you consider a donation today? 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.

Representative Text

1 After all of life is over,
And the curtain’s lifted high,
There’s a land of Life Eternal
That will greet the Christian’s eye,
Who in Jesus’ blood have trusted,
And been cleansed from inbred sin,
Will go sweeping thro’ the portals
With an “abundant entrance in.”

With an abundant entrance in,
With an abundant entrance in;
We’ll go sweeping thro’ the portals
With an abundant entrance in.

2 In that land of “heav’nly sunlight”
Loved ones for our coming wait,
“Where the tree of life is blooming,”
Just within the pearly gate.
They will shout to see us coming,
Heav’nly anthems they will sing,
As we sweep beyond the portals
With an “abundant entrance in.” [Refrain]

3 There they need no sun to light them,
For the Lamb is on the throne;
In the midst He stands to welcome
All His faithful children home.
Who have gone thro’ tribulation
From this world of death and sin,
Will go sweeping thro’ the portals
With an “abundant entrance in.” [Refrain]

4 To the founts of living water
He will lead us in that day,
There will be no pain nor sorrow,
He will wipe all tears away.
We will soon go home to glory,
For our souls are on thee wing;
We’ll go sweeping thro’ the portals
With an “abundant entrance in.” [Refrain]
