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.

Sweet Paradise

Representative Text

1 Sweet paradise! my future home,
The place of all the free;
Where never-fading flowers bloom—
I long to dwell in thee.

Refrain:
Sweet paradise, sweet paradise,
I long to rest my soul in thee;
Sweet paradise, sweet paradise,
Waiting, waiting for all the free.

2 Sweet paradise! where we shall meet,
And with our Savior reign,
Beyond the final judgment seat,
Where comes no sinful stain. [Refrain]

3 Sweet paradise! no night can fall
On thy resplendent shore;
Celestial day shines over all,
And shall forevermore. [Refrain]

4 Sweet paradise! oh, joys untold!
’Tis there I long to fly,
Where worlds of pleasure will unfold,
Where man shall never die. [Refrain]
