Full Text

1 Tis the promise of God, full salvation to give

2 Though the pathway be lonely, and dangerous, too,

3 Many loved ones have I in yon heavenly throng,
They are safe now in glory, and this is their song: [Refrain]

4 Little children I see standing close by their King,
And He smiles as their song of salvation they sing: [Refrain]

And the theme of our praises forever will be: [Refrain]
