He the Pearly Gates Will Open
|Truth & Praise||# 338|
Love divine, so great and wondrous,
Deep and mighty, pure, sublime;
Coming from the heart of Jesus -
Just the same through tests of time.
He the pearly gates will open
So that I may enter in;
For He purchased my redemption
And forgave me all my sin.
Like a dove when hunted, frightened,
As a wounded fawn was I;
Broken-hearted, 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.
