Representative Text

1 When we have pass’d this vale of tears,
We’ll wear a crown;
All thro’ the never-ending years,
We’ll wear a crown.

Chorus:
and when the battle’s over,
We shall wear a crown,
We shall wear a crown,
We shall wear a crown!
And when the battle’s over,
We shall wear a crown
In the new Jerusalem.

2 While age on age shall roll along,
We’ll wear a crown;
With golden harps we’ll sing the song,
We’ll wear a crown. [Chorus]

3 Too dazling for a sinner’s sight,
We’ll wear a crown;
All pure and gemm’d with living light,
We’ll wear a crown. [Chorus]

4 And all who too such bliss aspire,
We’ll wear a crown;
Must win their way thro’ blood and fire,
We’ll wear a crown. [Chorus]

5 Faith wings the soul beyond the sky,
We’ll wear a crown;
Up to that glorious world on high,
We’ll wear a crown. [Chorus]

6 We all may have a spotless dress,
We’ll wear a crown;
It is the robe of holiness,
We’ll wear a crown. [Chorus]
