Full 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]
