10. Around the Throne of God in Heaven

Around the throne of God in heaven
Will many children sing;
Children whose sins are all forgiven,
Will heavenly anthems bring,
Singing, "Glory, glory, glory be to God on high!"
What brings them to that world above,
That heaven so bright and fair,
Where all is peace, and joy, and love?
How came those children there?
Because the Saviour shed His blood
To wash away their sin;
Now washed in that most precious flood,
Behold them white and clean!
On earth they sought the Saviour's grace,
On earth they loved His name;
So then they'll see His blessed face,
And praise before the Lamb;
