204. Around the Throne of God

1 Around the throne of God in heav'n
Thousands of children stand,
Children whose sins are all forgiv'n,
A holy, happy band,
Singing, "Glory, glory,
Glory be to God on high."

2 In flowing robes of spotless white
See ev'ry one arrayed;
Dwelling in everlasting light
And joys that never fade,
Singing, "Glory, glory,
Glory be to God on high."

3 On earth they sought the Savior's grace,
On earth they loved His name;
So now they see His blessed face,
And stand before the Lamb,
Singing, "Glory, glory,
Glory be to God on high."
