A Portion of Paradise



So often we think of Paradise
As way off beyond the sun,
But we can have a little portion
Right here as life’s race is run;
We don’t have to wait until the end,
If we simply kneel and pray,
We can have real peace and joy, my friend,
As we live our lives each day.

A glorious Paradise awaits
All who come to Christ the King,
And when time ends we’ll enter the gates
To joyfully shout and sing;
But a foretaste of glory to come
Can be ours right here and now,
As we surrender to God the Son,
Giving our heart as we bow.

Jesus, our Savior, will set us free,
The storm within He will still,
He opens our eyes that we may see
And obey God’s perfect will;
Oh, glory to the Father, the Son,
And the Spirit – three in One,
A Portion of Paradise is ours…
Right now as the race is run.


“For in him we live, and move, and have our being”
“In thy presence is fullness of joy”
“For he is our peace”
(Acts 17:28; Ps. 16:11; Eph. 2:14)
