Full Text

1 In heav’n above, by faith I see
A crown of life laid up for me,
Upon its crest the angels trace:
“Made for a sinner saved by grace.”

Refrain:
A crown of life I, too, shall wear
Within that city bright and fair,
And songs of praise my soul shall sing,
For I’m a child of Christ, the King.

2 I have a house not built with hands,
Upon the hills of God it stands,
My earthly home may pass away,
But that above can ne’er decay. [Refrain]

3 There royal robes of whiteness wait,
And angels at the pearly gate
A welcome glad to me shall bring,
For I’m a child of Christ the King. [Refrain]

Telegraph, however, it was not until she was a widow with eight children to support that she started writing in earnest. She wrote articles, librettos, nature stories and other works, as well as hymns.
