Representative Text

1 There’s a voice that is gently calling,
And it whispers tenderly,
“There is room, there is room
In the Saviour’s heart for thee.”
There’s room, still room
In the Saviour’s heart of love,
And room for thee
In the paradise above.

2 There’s a love that is ever flowing,
And its streams are pure and sweet,
And it flows, ever flows,
In its fulness, at thy feet;
It flows for thee
From the Saviour’s heart of love;
It flows for thee
From the paradise above.

3 There’s a peace that is full of comfort
Which the world cannot bestow;
‘Tis a joy, ‘tis a bliss
Which the world can never known.
It fills, it fills
The Redeemer’s heart of love,
And flows to thee
From the paradise above.

4 There’s a home in the distant heaven,
So resplendent and so fair;
Home of light, home of love,
And its glory I shall share.
O home, sweet home
In the palaces of love!
My home, sweet home
In the paradise above!
