Representative Text

1 Round the throne in glory
Happy children throng,
And redemption’s story
Wakes the harp and song.
On the verdant mountain,
By the shining stream,
O the living fountain,
Jesus is their theme.

Refrain:
Round the throne in glory,
Thousands of children stand,
Singing with the angels
In that happy land,
Voices sweetly blending
As they joyful sing,
Glory be forever
To our heav’nly king.

2 Robes of snowy whiteness,
Beautiful and rare;
Crowns of radiant brightness,
Such those children wear.
Safe from death, bereavement,
Sorrow and the grave;
Safe from sin’s enslavement,
Victory’s palm they wave. [Refrain]

3 Children now sojourning
In a world of sin;
From your follies turning,
Strive to enter in;
Let your young affections
Round your Savior twine,
And ’mid Heav’n’s attractions,
Ye shall sing and shine. [Refrain]
