Full Text

1 There waits a crown beyond the skies,
A fadeless gem, a royal prize,
Within the Saviour’s tender care,
For every child of God to wear.

Refrain:
It shall be mine, unfading gem,
Eternal gift, bright diadem;
Its radiant light the stars outshine;
The crown of glory shall be mine!

2 I suffer here, endure the pain,
I bear the crown that I may reign;
I seek the honor and renown
That glorifies the victor’s crown. [Refrain]

3 No cruel hand can dim nor mar,
Deny the crown of one bright star;
The light will never fade away,
But glitter like the orb of day. [Refrain]

4 Eternal years will come and go,
And all shall pass away below;
But, far above, the realms of night,
The crown will shine forever bright. [Refrain]
