1 In the Paradise of Jesus
There are many homes of light,
And they shine beyond the darkness
With a radiance clear and bright.

Oh, that I might hear the angels
Singing o’er the crystal sea,
And amidst the many mansions
Find a home prepared for me!

2 In those quiet resting-places,
Midst eh pastures green and fair,
Jesus gathers in the homeless,
And He dwells among them there. [Refrain]

3 Can we see those happy faces
Of the dear ones gone before?
They are ready now to greet us,
When we gain that blessed shore. [Refrain]

4 Then the pearly gates, unfolding,
Never shall be closed again,
We shall see within the city
Jesus, ‘mid His white-robed train. [Refrain]

5 Oh, to join the Alleluia,
And the glad thanksgiving raise,
With the ransom’d hosts of Jesus,
In their songs of endless praise! [Refrain]
