2 O Paradise, O Paradise,

The world is growing old;
Who would not be at rest and free

Where love is never cold? Where loyal hearts and true, etc. 3 O Paradise, o Paradise,

'Tis weary waiting here:
I long to be where Jesus is,

To feel, to see Him near; Where loyal hearts and true, etc. 4 O Paradise, O Paradise,

I long to sin no more,
I long to be as pure on earth

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.

Frederick W. Faber, 1862

2 What rush of Hallelujahs

Fills all the earth and sky!
What ringing of a thousand harps

Bespeaks the triumph nigh!
O day for which creation

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;
What knitting severed friendships

up,
Where partings are no more!

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:
Show in the heavens Thy promised

sign;
Thou Prince and Savior, come!

2 Here, in the body pent,

Absent from Him I roam,
Yet nightly pitch my moving tent

A day's march nearer home.
3 My Father's house on high,

Home of my soul, how near,
At times, to faith's foreseeing eye,

Thy golden gates appear!
4 Ah! then my spirit faints

To reach the land I love,
The bright inheritance of saints,

Jerusalem above!
5 “Forever with the Lord!"

Father, if 'tis Thy will,
The promise of that faithful word

E'en here to me fulfill.
6 Be Thou at my right hand,

Then can I never fail;
Uphold Thou me, and I shall stand;

Fight, and I must prevail.
7 So when my latest breath

Shall rend the veil in twain,
By death I shall escape from death,

And life eternal gain.
8 Knowing as I am known,

How shall I love that word,
And oft repeat, before the throne,
“Forever with the Lord!"

J. Montgomery, 1835
