Who would not seek the hap - py land Where they that loved are blest?
2 O Paradise, O Paradise,
The world is growing old;
Where love is never cold? Where loyal hearts and true, etc. 3 O Paradise, o Paradise,
'Tis weary waiting here:
To feel, to see Him near; Where loyal hearts and true, etc. 4 O Paradise, O Paradise,
I long to sin no more,
As on thy spotless shore; Where loyal hearts and true, etc. 5 O Paradise, O Paradise,
We shall not wait for long; E'en now the loving ear may catch
Faint fragments of thy song; Where loyal hearts and true, etc. 6 Lord Jesus, King of Paradise,
O keep me in Thy love, And guide me to that happy land
Of perfect rest above; Where loyal hearts and true, etc.

the ransomed saints Throng up the steeps of light:
2 What rush of Hallelujahs
Fills all the earth and sky!
Bespeaks the triumph nigh!
And all its tribes were made; O joy, for all its former woes
A thousand-fold repaid! 3 0 then what raptured greetings
On Canaan's happy shore;
4 Bring near Thy great salvation,
Thou Lamb for sinners slain; Fill up the roll of Thine elect,
Then take Thy power and reign: Appear, Desire of nations,
Thine exiles long for home:
2 Here, in the body pent,
Absent from Him I roam,
A day's march nearer home.
Home of my soul, how near,
Thy golden gates appear!
To reach the land I love,
Father, if 'tis Thy will,
E'en here to me fulfill.
Then can I never fail;
Fight, and I must prevail.
Shall rend the veil in twain,
And life eternal gain.
How shall I love that word,
J. Montgomery, 1835
