If I labor to save poor lost souls

Representative Text

1 If I labor to save poor lost souls gone astray,
There will be stars in my crown;
Gently leading them back to the strait, narrow way,
There will be stars in my crown.

Refrain:
There will be stars in my crown,
When the sun of my life goeth down;
When my labors are o’er,
And I reach heaven’s shore,
There will be stars in my crown.

2 If my light ever shines so that others may see—
There will be stars in my crown—
The life of the Savior reflected thru me,
There will be stars in my crown. [Refrain]

3 Ev’ry soul that I lead to the dear Savior’s feet
Will be a star in my crown
When ‘its placed on my head by the Savior’s own hand—
Many the stars in my crown. [Refrain]
