- When we've been there ten thousand years,
- Bright shining as the sun,
- We've no less days to sing God's praise
- Than when we'd first begun.
- The Lord has promised good to me,
- His word my hope secures;
- He will my shield and portion be,
- As long as life endures.
I feel tricked. How can this verse go around masquerading itself as part of the song when it wasn't even written by the John Newton??
