Around the throne of God in Heaven,
Thousands of children stand,
Children whose sins are all forgiven,
A holy, happy band.
Glory be to God on high.
In flowing robes of spotless white
See everyone arrayed;
Dwelling in everlasting light
And joys that never fade.
What brought them to the world above,
That Heaven so bright and fair,
Where all is peace, and joy, and love;
How came those children there.
Because the Savior shed His blood
To wash away their sin;
Bathed in that pure and precious flood,
Behold them white and clean,
On earth they sought the Savior’s grace,
On earth they loved His name;
So now they see His blessèd face,
And stand before the Lamb,
