A Happy Band

Representative Text

1. There is a happy band on earth today,
Who now for Jesus stand, true ev'ry way;
Soon they his face shall see,
Live thro' all eternity,
From earth and sorrow free, where all is love.

2. While here this happy band works ev'ry day,
Led by the Savior's hand, safe all the way;
Kept by his mighty pow'r,
Sav'd from sin each day and hour,
Where blessings ever show'r from heav'n above.

3. Bright in God's chosen band beams ev'ry eye,
Kept by almighty pow'r, love can not die;
We now in glory run,
Holding forth God's only Son,
For he the work hath done. Praise him today!

4. God's true and spotless church is one today,
With Christ the living head, and only way;
God's saints array'd in white,
Spreading truth in evening light,
With Satan's hosts to fight, then watch and pray.
