PARADISE




How sweet the word of Christ the Lord,
While on the cross He dies,
A word to all who on Him call
For life in paradise.

From the cross the Savior cries,
“Come with Me to paradise;
Look to Me, believe and live,
Accept the life I freely give.”



The dying thief, in full belief,
On Jesus fixed his eyes;
His only plea, “Remember me,
O Lord, in paradise.”

From the cross the Savior cries,
“Come with Me to paradise;
Look to Me, believe and live,
Accept the life I freely give.”



By man condemned, without a friend,
Will Jesus heed his cries?
O blessèd Lord, how quick Thy word,
“Today in paradise.”

From the cross the Savior cries,
“Come with Me to paradise;
Look to Me, believe and live,
Accept the life I freely give.”



Tho’ vile as he, O sinner, flee
While Jesus calls, be wise;
His word believe, and now receive
A life in paradise.

From the cross the Savior cries,
“Come with Me to paradise;
Look to Me, believe and live,
Accept the life I freely give.”
