He The Pearly Gates Will Open

But as it is written,
eye hath not seen, nor ear heard,
neither have entered into the heart of man,
the things which God hath prepared 
for them that love him.
- 1 Corinthians 2:9 -

Love divine, so great and wondrous,
Deep and mighty, pure, sublime!
Coming from the heart of Jesus,
Just the same through tests of time.

Like a dove when hunted, frightened,
As a wounded fawn was I;
Brokenhearted, yet He healed me,
He will heed the sinner’s cry.

Love divine, so great and wondrous,
All my sins He then forgave!
I will sing His praise forever,
For His blood, His power to save.

In life’s eventide, at twilight,
At His door I’ll knock and wait;
By the precious love of Jesus
I shall enter Heaven’s gate.

He the pearly gates will open,
So that I may enter in;
For He purchased my redemption
And forgave me all my sin.
- Fredrick A. Blom -

My heart is glad, I'm saved by grace,
to Christ my life I give;
And He's prepared for me a place,
where I with Him shall live.

In heaven's land, heav'ns glory land,
we'll live eternally;
Our home prepared by Christ's dear hand,
and there His face we'll see.

Heav'n has no night, Christ is light,
its sun shall ne'er go down;
There clothed we'll be in garments white,
from Christ receive a crown.

In heav'n with Christ, we'll sing with joy,
no tears our eyes will dim;
And sin shall ne'er our hope destroy ,
when  we're at home with Him.

Blessed rest with Him to live in heav'ns land
with God's own Son.
Even here His peace He'll give-
But the best is yet to come.
- N. Frykman -
