“He the Pearly Gates Will Open”
By Fredrick A. Blom, 1917
Love Divine, so great and wonrdrous,
Deep and mighty, pure, sublime!
Coming from the heart of Jesus,
Just the same thro’ 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 pow’r 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.
