Representative Text

1 When I stand at last in the golden light
That shines on the other shore,
With my soul entranced by the wondrous sight
Of the Lord whom I adore;
When my work is done and my cross laid down,
Shall I take from His hand a starless crown?

Refrain:
A starless crown, no diadem;
A starless crown, not one bright gem;
When my work is done and my cross laid down,
Shall I take from His hand a starless crown?

2 When I gaze at last on my Saviour’s face
That beams with His love divine,
Will my heart be sad in that joyous place
When His eyes look into mine?
When my work is done and my cross laid down,
Shall I take from His hand a starless crown? [Refrain]

3 When I see at last how the ransomed bring
Their trophies unto His name,
When they hail Him Saviour, Redeemer, King,
Will my heart be filled with shame?
When my work is done and my cross laid down,
Shall I take from His hand a starless crown? [Refrain]
