Love Divine So Great And Wondrous Hymn Lyrics

This song is known as Pearly gates, or He the pearly gates will open.
Although the formal title is Love Divine So Great and Wondrous. Same
in Norwegian. It is known as Perleporten or Han skal åpne perleporten
although the formal name is Som En Herlig Guddomskilde. I wanted to
put all the names in the title field, but not allowed cause of limited
space.

I tabbed the English version of it, but the Norwegian lyrics follows
behind and of course it is the same tabbing for both of them.

Love divine, so great and wondrous,
5 5-4 -5 5 -4 44

Deep and mighty, pure, sublime!
-5 -5 5-4 4 5-4

Coming from the heart of Jesus,
5-4 4 4 3 3 3*4

Just the same through tests of time.
4 -3 3 5 -5 -3 4

Refrain
He the pearly gates will open,
-4 -4 -4-4 4 -4 54

So that I may enter in;
-5 -5 5 -4 45 -4

For He purchased my redemption
5 -4 44 3 33*4

And forgave me all my sin.
4 -33 5 -5 -3 4

Like a dove when hunted, frightened,
As a wounded fawn was I;
Brokenhearted, yet He healed me,
He will heed the sinner’s cry.

Refrain
He the pearly gates will open,
So that I may enter in;
For He purchased my redemption
And forgave me all my sin.

Love divine, so great and wondrous,
All my sins He then forgave!
I will sing His praise forever,
For His blood, His power to save.

Refrain
He the pearly gates will open,
So that I may enter in;
For He purchased my redemption
And forgave me all my sin.

In life’s eventide, at twilight,
At His door I’ll knock and wait;
By the precious love of Jesus
I shall enter Heaven’s gate.

Refrain
He the pearly gates will open,
So that I may enter in;
For He purchased my redemption
And forgave me all my sin.

Som en herlig guddomskilde,
Mektig, dyp og rik og stor.
Er den kjærlighet og nåde
Som i Jesu hjerte bor.

Han skal åpne perleporten
Så at jeg får komme inn,
For med blodet har han frelst meg
Og bevaret meg som sin.

Engang som en jaget due
som en såret hjort jeg var.
Men et sykt fortvilet hjerte
Aldri Jesus bortvist har.

Han skal åpne perleporten
Så at jeg får komme inn,
For med blodet har han frelst meg
Og bevaret meg som sin.

Under over alle under
Alt han tilga meg en gang
Om hans underfulle godhet
Vil jeg synge glad min sang

Han skal åpne perleporten
Så at jeg får komme inn,
For med blodet har han frelst meg
Og bevaret meg som sin.

Når engang i livets aften
Jeg for porten banker på
Da ved Jesu store nåde
Skal den åpen for meg stå.

Han skal åpne perleporten
Så at jeg får komme inn,
For med blodet har han frelst meg
Og bevaret meg som sin.
