1 Oh! we are going to wear a crown,
Oh! we are going to wear a crown,
Oh! we are going to wear a crown,
To wear a starry crown.

Refrain:
Away over Jordan,
With our blessed Jesus
Away over Jordan,
To wear a starry crown.

2 You must be sav'd to wear a crown,
You must be sav'd to wear a crown,
You must be sav'd to wear a crown,
To wear a starry crown. [Refrain]

3 You must be cleans'd to wear that crown.
You must be cleans'd to wear that crown.
You must be cleans'd to wear that crown,
To wear a starry crown. [Refrain]

4 You must live upright to wear that crown.
You must live upright to wear that crown.
You must live upright to wear that crown,
To wear a starry crown. [Refrain]

5 You must fight the fight to wear that crown.
You must fight the fight to wear that crown.
You must fight the fight to wear that crown,
To wear a starry crown. [Refrain]

6 You must bear the cross to win that crown.
You must bear the cross to win that crown.
You must bear the cross to win that crown,
To wear a starry crown. [Refrain]
