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.

O what love the Savior for my soul has shown

Author: B. B. Edmiaston
Tune: THE CROWN
Published in 3 hymnals

Representative 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]
