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.”

Refrain:
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]
