1 Oh, shall I wear a starless crown
In yonder world of glory?
Or will some little friend be found
To whom I've told the story—
The wondrous story of the cross,
The sufferings of the Saviour,
Who died that he from worldly dross
Might win us to his favor.
Oh, happy day! Oh, happy place!
We soon shall meet together,
Where Jesus stands with smiling face
To crown us his forever.
2 A youthful army now we stand
Our Captain's word is given,
We'll onward move, his blest command
Will guide us on to heaven.
When ransomed hosts shall gather round
The Lamb on Zion's mountain,
Oh, there may we in ranks be found,
Beside the living fountain! [Refrain]
