10. Around the Throne of God in Heaven

1
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!"
2
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?
3
Because the Saviour shed His blood
 
To wash away their sin;
 
Now washed in that most precious flood,
 
Behold them white and clean!
4
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;
