Representative Text

1 Who shall win them, who shall wear them?
Crowns immortal, golden, glorious?
Reap their ripened sheaves and bear them
To the harvest home victorious?
Who shall gain the starry prize,
Crowned and throned in paradise?

Refrain:
Who shall wear a crown victorious,
In that land of light all glorious?
Who shall gain the starry prize,
Crowned and throned in paradise?

2 Shall we, Lord, who faint and falter,
Droop and doubt, dismayed and daunted?
Shall we round that golden altar
Join the song by elders chanted?
Find with kings and priests a place
In the rapture of Thy face? [Refrain]

3 Shall we, ever rising higher,
Praise, and blessing, and salvation,
On the sea of glass and fire,
Fall in holy adoration?
Swell the song, till then unknown,
Cast our crowns before the throne. [Refrain]

4 Draw us, Jesus, near and nearer,
Ever after Thee ascending,
Let our love grow stronger, dearer,
Upward to its perfect ending;
Lift us, then, into the light,
Let us walk with Thee in white. [Refrain]
