What Delight Will Meet Our Eyes


What delight will meet our eyes, what hosannas will arise,
When the Plains of Paradise Appear!
We shall be a happy throng and shall sing a sweeter song,
When the Plains of Paradise Appear.

Refrain:
When the lovely Plains of Paradise appear,
And the song of all the ransomed we shall hear;
What a shouting there will be, when the Savior’s face we see,
And the lovely Plains of Paradise appear.

Friends who left us here below, over yonder we shall know,
When the Plains of Paradise Appear!
They will take us by the hand, lead us thro’ that happy land,
When the Plains of Paradise Appear. [Refrain]

Happy eyes will gaze upon an eternal rising sun,
When the Gates of Paradise Appear!
We shall see the King of Life, whom we followed thro’ the strife,
When the Plains of Paradise Appear. [Refrain]
