Representative Text

1 Tis the promise of God, full salvation to give

Refrain:

3 Many loved ones have I in yon heavenly throng,
They are safe now in glory, and this is their song: [Refrain]

And He smiles as their song of salvation they sing: [Refrain]

6 There’s a part in that chorus for you and for me,
And the theme of our praises forever will be: [Refrain]
