Hymn/Song Information

O paradise O paradise Who doth not crave




O paradise! O paradise!
Who doth not crave for rest?
Who would not seek the happy land
Where they that loved are blest.

Where loyal hearts and true
Stand ever in the light.
All rapture through and through,
In Godís most holy sight?



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
Stand ever in the light.
All rapture through and through,
In Godís most holy sight?



O paradise! O paradise!
íTis weary waiting here;
I long to be where Jesus is,
To feel, to see Him near.

Where loyal hearts and true
Stand ever in the light.
All rapture through and through,
In Godís most holy sight?



O paradise! O paradise!
I want to sin no more,
I want to be as pure on earth
As on thy spotless shore.

Where loyal hearts and true
Stand ever in the light.
All rapture through and through,
In Godís most holy sight?



O paradise! O paradise!
I greatly long to see
The special place my dearest Lord
In love prepares for me.

Where loyal hearts and true
Stand ever in the light.
All rapture through and through,
In Godís most holy sight?



O paradise! O paradise!
I shall not wait for long;
e'en now the loving ear may catch
faint fragments of thy song.

Where loyal hearts and true
Stand ever in the light.
All rapture through and through,
In Godís most holy sight?



Lord Jesu, 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
Stand ever in the light.
All rapture through and through,
In Godís most holy sight?
