Central’s never busy,
Always on the line;
You may hear from Heaven
Almost any time;
’Tis a royal service,
Free for one and all;
When you get in trouble,
Give this royal line a call.

Refrain

Telephone to glory,
O what joy divine!
I can feel the current
Moving on the line,
Built by God the Father
For His loved and own,
We may talk to Jesus
Thru this royal telephone.

There will be no charges,
Telephone is free,
It was built for service,
Just for you and me;
There will be no waiting
On this royal line,
Telephone to glory
Always answers just in time.

Refrain

Fail to get the answer?
Satan’s crossed your wire,
By some strong delusion,
Or some base desire;
Take away obstructions,
God is on the throne,
And you’ll get your answer
Thru this royal telephone.

Refrain

If your line is grounded,
And connection true
Has been lost with Jesus,
Tell you what to do:
Prayer and faith and promise,
Mend the broken wire,
’Till your soul is burning
With the Pentecostal fire.

Refrain

Carnal combinations
Cannot get control
Of this line to glory,
Anchored in the soul;
Storm and trial cannot
Disconnect the line,
Held in constant keeping
By the Father’s hand divine.
