There is a Paradise of Rest

Verse 1:
There is a Paradise of rest
On yonder tranquil shore;
Beyond the shadow and gloom of night,
Where toil and tears are o’er.

Refrain:
Meet me there, oh, meet me there,
At the dawning of that morning bright and fair;
Meet me there, oh, meet me there,
In the land beyond the river, meet me there.

Verse 2:
There is a City crown’d with light,
Its joys no tongue can tell;
For they who enter shall behold the King,
And in His presence dwell.

Verse 3:
There is a crown laid up on high
That Christ the Lord will give
To those who patiently His coming wait,
And for His glory live.

Verse 4:
Oh, then be faithful unto death,
Press on the heavenly way,
That we may enter thro’ the Gates of Life
To realms of endless day.

W.R. Lindsay/Ira D. Sankey
