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.

205. Will You Have a Crown?

1 It is written in the Bible
How the Savior died in love,
That each lost and guilty sinner
May be saved and crowned above.

Refrain:
Oh, that blessed day is coming!
We’ll receive a crown of life
In the joyful day awaiting.
Will you have a crown of life?

2 Do you hear the invitation,
Oh, how wonderful the grace;
Heaven offers full redemption,
And a crown of perfect peace. [Refrain]

3 Tell me not of worldly honor,
Earthly garlands soon decay;
I would gain celestial splendor,
And a crown of endless day. [Refrain]

4 Were ten thousand worlds around me
All so easy to obtain;
They were naught beside the glory
Of that crown which I shall gain. [Refrain]

5 Oh, we’ll see our dear Redeemer,
When the heavens shall unfold;
On each happy overcomer
Place a crown of purest gold. [Refrain]
