Portals of Heaven

Portals of Heaven ~ Portals of Grace!
Portals, beyond which
Iíll see His face!
Portals ~ the doorway, to Life evermore ~
Portals, the entry, to Eternityís shore!

I see the Pearly gates in my mind ~
I wonít even think of
What Iíve left behind;
Jesus will be there ~ arms open wide ~
Gathering jewels to the other side.

I see the angels, I see their eyes,
Watching intently
For Jesusí 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 ~
Iíll let my heartís cup
With Love overflow!
Iíll 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
Youíve packed away?
His blood is still flowing ~ so strong and so pure ~
Oh, come to Jesus, and Heaven is sure!


CHORUS:


PORTALS OF GLORY! MERCY AND GRACE!
IíLL SEE MY REDEEMER -THEN FACE TO FACE!
THERE ON THE HILLSIDES, BY THE CLEAR CRYSTAL SEA
MANSIONS ARE WAITING - AND THEREíS ONE FOR ME!
