Where are the Hebrew children?

Representative Text

1 Where are the Hebrew children?
Where are the Hebrew children?
Where are the Hebrew children?
Safe in the promised land.
Tho' the furnace flamed around them,
God, while in their troubles, found them;
He with love and mercy bound them,
Safe in the promised land.

2 Where are the twelve apostles?
Where are the twelve apostles?
Where are the twelve apostles?
Save in the promised land.
They went up thro' pain and sighing,
Scoffing, scourging, crucifying,
Nobly for their Master dying,
Safe in the promised land.

3 Where are the holy Christians?
Where are the holy Christians?
Where are the holy Christians?
Safe in the promised land.
Those who've washed their robes and made them
White and spotless pure and laid them
Where no earthly stain can fade them,
Safe in the promised land.
