Let no man take thy crown

Full Text

1 Hold fast, dear friend, that which thou hast,
That no make take thy crown;
Be true and faithful to the last,
That no man take thy crown;
’Twas bought at such a fearful price,
The Son of God the sacrifice,
For faithfulness let this suffice,
Let no man take thy crown.

Refrain:
Hold fast, hold fast that which thou hast;
The days for work are flying fast,
Be firm and steadfast to the last,
Then claim thy crown, thy jeweled crown
That Christ hath bought for thee.

2 Press on, my friend, in Jesus’ might,
That no make take thy crown;
Be ever foremost in the fight,
That no make take thy crown;
Stand firm amid the sinful throng,
The Spirit’s sword thy weapon strong,
Uphold the right, subdue the wrong,
That no man take thy crown. [Refrain]

3 See that thy shield is never dim,
That no make take thy crown;
Just work and pray and trust in him,
That no make take thy crown;
If thou wilt keep thine armor bright,
And hold aloft the flag of light,
Thou shalt be victor in the fight,
At last shall wear the crown. [Refrain]
