543. Around the Throne of God in Heaven

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 Savior 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 Savior's grace,
on earth they loved his Name;
so now they see his blessed face,
and stand before the Lamb, [Refrain]
