648. Around the throne of God in heav'n

1 Around the throne of God in heav'n,
Thousands of children stand,
Children whose sins are all forgiv'n,
A holy, happy band,

Refrain:
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, [Refrain]

3 What brought them to that world above,
That heav'n so bright and fair,
Where all is peace, and joy, and love;
How came those children there, [Refrain]

4 Because the Saviour shed His blood
To wash away their sin;
Bathed in that pure and precious flood,
Behold them white and clean, [Refrain]

5 On earth they sought the Saviour's grace,
On earth they loved his Name;
So now they see His blesséd face,
And stand before the Lamb, [Refrain]

Amen.
