Beautiful Crowns

Full Text

1 A crown of thorns my Saviour wore
For one as vile as me;
My heavy load of guilt He bore
To give me liberty.

Chorus:
Beautiful crowns we soon shall wear,
Yonder in mansions bright and fair;
Dwelling forever with Jesus there,
Beautiful crowns we shall wear.
Beautiful crowns we soon shall wear,
Yonder in mansions bright and fair;
Dwelling forever with Jesus there,
Beautiful crowns we shall wear.

2 A crown of life is promised all
Who to the end endure;
Obeying God, they shall not fall,
But in Him rest secure. [Chorus]

3 A crown of righteousness is laid
Aside for ev'ry one
Who fights the fight, whose trust is stayed
In God till life is done. [Chorus]

4 A crown of glory God will give,
That fadeth not away,
To those who faithful to Him live
Till that great crowning day. [Chorus]
