1. Are you marching in the army of our King,
To that golden land of bliss beyond the sky?
Even now His praises bring,
Let the chorus loudly ring,
For the crowning day is coming by and by.

Oh, the crowning day is coming, is coming by and by,
Yes, the crowning day is coming, is coming by and by.
There are crowns for you and me!
Crowns of gold, by faith, we’ll see,
Crowns and kingdoms in a better world on high.

2. Are you fighting ’neath the banner of the cross,
True and faithful to your Savior till you die?
If sustaining earthly loss,
Know these treasures are but dross,
And the crowning day is coming by and by. [Refrain]

3. Hear the Savior’s voice above the strife and din,
While the fiery darts of Satan ’round you fly!
You the victory shall win,
Over death, and hell, and sin,
For the crowning day is coming by and by. [Refrain]

4. We’ll press onward to that country wondrous fair,
To that fairy land of peace beyond the sky;
Earthly crowns cannot compare
With the crowns the saints shall wear,
In the crowning day that’s coming by and by. [Refrain]
