307. How Many Children Say
How many children say,
"I'd like to go to heaven,"
Yet never think that they
Must have their sins forgiven,
Before they can in glory be,
Or Jesus Christ in glory see.
None can to glory go,
Or dwell with God above,
But they who Jesus know,
And trust the Savior's love;
The holy words of truth declare
No other way of entrance there.
But now this "living way"
To all is open free;
And ruined sinners may
Go in and happy be—
May have their sins through Christ forgiven,
The only way to enter heaven.
