Representative Text

1 If the way leads down where the shadows lie,
If the way leads up t’ward the sunlit sky,
Ever travel on, be it up or down,
At the journey’s end you will find a crown.

Refrain:
You will find a crown, when you reach the goal,
‘Tis awaiting there ev’ry faithful soul.
Fear ye not the shadows deep,
Or the mountain pathway steep,
If you would wear a crown,
If you would wear a crown.

2 If the way should lead o’er the desert sand,
If the way should lead by a wave-wash’d strand,
In the wilderness or the busy town,
At the journey’s end you will find a crown. [Refrain]

3 If the way should lead where the flowers bloom,
If the way should lead through the Winter’s gloom,
Where the world may smile or the world may frown,
At the journey’s end you will find a crown. [Refrain]
