Portals of Heaven ~ Portals of Grace!
Portals, beyond which
I'll see His face!
Portals ~ the doorway, to Life evermore ~
Portals, the entry, to Eternity's shore!
I see the Pearly gates in my mind ~
I won't even think of
What I've left behind;
Jesus will be there ~ arms open wide ~
Gathering jewels to the other side.
I see the angels, I see their eyes,
For Jesus' great prize,
The life that He laid down, paid for all sin;
Gladly rejoicing as I enter in.
Oh, All the loved ones,
Gone on before ~
See how they run to His open door!
Oh, what rejoicing, singing His name ~
Land of the Sonlight ~ always the same!
Never a dull day, never a tear!
Never a lonely
Soul will be there!
No wreath of sorrow will hang on a door
Jesus, our Savior, safe on His shore!
While I am waiting ~ down here below ~
I'll let my heart's cup
With Love overflow!
I'll dream the dream that ~ He died to share,
Holding my breath and watching the air!
Soon through the Eastern ~ sky He will break ~
Just like He promised,
Loved one to take!
Unfolding the pages of Life throughout time ~
Precious Redeemer ~ I call Him mine!
Basking in Sonlight ~ all of our days ~
How could we ever
Sing worthy praise?
All that He asks is ~ love Him so true ~
Love comes so easy, now how about you?
Will you let Jesus, pardon today,
All of the sin load
You've packed away?
His blood is still flowing ~ so strong and so pure ~
Oh, come to Jesus, and Heaven is sure!
Portals of glory! Mercy and grace!
I'll see my Redeemer - then face to face!
There on the hillsides, by the clear crystal sea
Mansions are waiting - and there's one for me!
