Dear Friend of Hymnary,

So before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary going.

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. So if you benefit from, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

A crown in heaven you shall wear

I know there's a home for the good that labor here

1 I know there’s a rest for the good that labor here,
Just beyond death’s valley dark and cold;
And the ones that reach that home so bright and fair,
Shall wear a glitt’ring crown of gold.

Labor on, labor on,
For a crown in heaven you shall wear,
Labor on, labor on,
For a crown in heaven you shall wear.

2 I know there’s a land that is beautiful and bright,
Just beyond the Jordan’s turbid roar;
And I soon shall pass beyond all mortal sight,
To the promised Canaan’s happy shore. [Refrain]

3 There we’ll never grieve, but rejoicing faces see,
As we near the bright eternal shore;
Where the angels wait with crowns for you and me,
With them we’ll dwell for evermore. [Refrain]
