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.

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.

Refrain:
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]
