Hymnary Friends,

Please pardon this brief interruption, and please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. Here's why.

Each month half a million people visit this website for free access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet. But this project does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. Twice a year we hold a fund drive, and these drives are critical to our future.

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure giving site. Or you can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.
Harry Plantinga

Representative Text

1 I’ve a crown laid up in heaven,
Where no rust or moth decay;
Joy to me this tho’t has given,
Naught can steal my crown away.

Earthly treasures cannot enter,
Nothing there shall e’er decay,
Could the charms of this world enter,
They would steal our crown away.

2 There’s a crown of life eternal,
For all who His will obey;
Greater than all earthly treasures,
Naught can steal this crown away. [Refrain]

3 There will be a happy meeting
Where no rust or moth decay;
Where we’ll reign forever,
Naught can steal thy peace away. [Refrain]

4 I am going home to Jess
Where I know my treasures be;
Free from rust and condemnation,
Naught can steal them away from me. [Refrain]
