Hymnary Friends,

Please pardon this brief interruption, and please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. Here's why.

Each month half a million people visit this website for free access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet. But this project does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. Twice a year we hold a fund drive, and these drives are critical to our future.

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure giving site. Or you can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.

4761. O Crown of Rejoicing

1. O crown of rejoicing that’s waiting for me,
When finished my course, and when Jesus I see,
And when from my Lord comes the sweet sounding word:
Receive, faithful servant, the joy of thy Lord.

Refrain
O crown of rejoicing, O wonderful song;
O joy everlasting, O glorified throng;
O beautiful home, my home can it be?
O glory reserved for me?

2. O wonderful song that in glory I’ll sing,
To Him who redeemed me, to Jesus my King;
All glory and honor to Him shall be giv’n,
And praises unceasing, forever in Heav’n. [Refrain]

3. O joy everlasting when Heaven is won,
Forever in glory to shine as the sun;
No sorrow nor sighing—these all flee away,
No night there, no shadows—’tis one endless day. [Refrain]

4. O wonderful name which the glorified bear,
The new name which Jesus bestows on us there;
To him that o’ercometh ’twill only be giv’n,
Blest sign of approval, our welcome to Heav’n. [Refrain]
