Representative Text

1. O crown of rejoicing that’s waiting for me,
When finished my course, and when Jesus I see,
And when from my Lord comes the sweet sounding word:
Receive, faithful servant, the joy of thy Lord.

Refrain
O crown of rejoicing, O wonderful song;
O joy everlasting, O glorified throng;
O beautiful home, my home can it be?
O glory reserved for me?

2. O wonderful song that in glory I’ll sing,
To Him who redeemed me, to Jesus my King;
All glory and honor to Him shall be giv’n,
And praises unceasing, forever in Heav’n. [Refrain]

3. O joy everlasting when Heaven is won,
Forever in glory to shine as the sun;
No sorrow nor sighing—these all flee away,
No night there, no shadows—’tis one endless day. [Refrain]

4. O wonderful name which the glorified bear,
The new name which Jesus bestows on us there;
To him that o’ercometh ’twill only be giv’n,
Blest sign of approval, our welcome to Heav’n. [Refrain]
