Representative Text

1 If we are keeping Jesus near,
And telling of His love,
We shall be called away from here
To reign with Him above.

Chorus:
We shall reign with Him,
Share the throne with Him,
When in glory our Savior comes again;
Love Him day by day,
Serve Him all the way,
In the fullness of glory
We shall reign.

2 Labor for Him from day to day,
Till trials all are past;
Tell of His love along the way,
Toi reign with Him at last. [Chorus]

3 Keeping our earthly temples bright,
Pray on and watch and wait;
Scatter the precious gospel light,
Till love throws wide the gate. [Chorus]

4 Wonderful joy we all shall know,
Beyond the shadows dim;
Let us, then, be prepared to go
Above to reign with Him. [Chorus]
