Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

1 I’ll wait to be honored above,
What wondrous honor ’twill be,
When Jesus because of His love,
Puts a crown of His glory on me!
I’ll wait to be honored above,
Where loved ones are watching for me,
And where, with the angels of God,
The face of my Father I’ll see.

I’ll wait, O, I’ll wait,
Yes, I’ll wait to be honored above.
I’ll wait, O, I’ll wait,
Yes, I’ll wait to be honored above.

2 I’ll wait to be honored above;
’Tis Jesus invites me to come,
And only because of His love,
The Savior will welcome me home;
And soon I’ll be honored above.
An heir of my God and my king,
Joint heir with the Son of His love,
Whose praises in Heaven I’ll sing. [Refrain]
