Strait [straight] is the gate to heaven above

Representative Text

1 Straight is the gate to heaven above,
And narrow is the way;
Yet there is room in God's great love
For thee, for thee alway,
For thee, for thee alway.

2 In Paradise there still is room,
There still is room for thee;
For thee the Savior hath a home,
Where heavenly mansions be,
Where heavenly mansions be.

3 Though thousand times ten thousands stand
White-robed in glory there,
There is a place at God's right hand
For thee in heaven so fair,
For thee in heaven so fair.

4 In Jesus' heart there still is room,
In heaven is room also,
The gospel message bids thee come,
Praise God who loves thee, too,
Praise God who loves thee, too.

5 Now God be praised, who even me
A glorious diadem
Will grant when I His glory see
In His Jerusalem,
In His Jerusalem.
