275

C.M. and refrain

1
Around the throne of God in heaven,
Thousands of children stand;
Children whose sins are all forgiven,
A holy, happy band,
All singing, Glory, glory!

2
What brought them to that world above,
That heaven so bright and fair,
Where all is peace and joy and love?
How came those children there?
All singing Glory, glory!

3
Because the Saviour shed His blood
To wash away their sins,
Bathed in that pure and precious flood,
Behold them white and clean;
All singing Glory, glory!

4
On earth they sought their Saviour’s grace,
On earth they loved His Name;
And now they see His blessed face,
And stand before the Lamb;
All singing Glory, glory!
