Dear Friend of Hymnary,

Please, before you close this box, would you today consider making a donation to Hymnary. Did you know that more than two million people came here in the first four months of 2017? These are people who have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site, and they are grateful for the resources they find here.

But, as you can imagine, keeping this site going does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue.

So, if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do. You can make your tax-deductible contribution through the Calvin College donation page, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

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

Published in 3 hymnals

Full Text

1 O what love the Savior for my soul has shown,
Gladly I will labor for Him;
For awaiting me I know there is a crown.
In the new Jerusalem.

Refrain:
There's a bright crown waiting,
waiting for me,
There's a bright crown waiting,
waiting for me,
There's a bright crown waiting,
waiting for me,
In the new Jerusalem.

2 As reward for crosses that I here may bear,
There's a crown with many a gem;
It through years unending,
I shall surely wear,
In the new Jerusalem. [Refrain]

3 I have loved ones waiting for my coming there,
Soon my Lord will call me to them;
We shall sing "Hosanna," wearing crowns all fair,
In the new Jerusalem. [Refrain]
