Ye shall receive a crown of glory that fadeth not away.@1 Peter 5:4

Mrs. W. L. Wall, 1909.

Ar­e­qui­pa Will­iam T. Dale, 1909 (🔊 pdf nwc).

When this life of mine is ended,
And from earthly prison free,
Will I find my Savior waiting,
When I reach the crystal sea?
Will there be a loved one watching?
Will the Savior pilot me?
Will there be a royal welcome?
Will there be a crown for me?

Refrain

Yes, there’ll be a royal welcome,
And before the throne I’ll stand;
We will sing and shout together,
Singing, Glory to the Lamb.

When I enter those blest mansions
And behold my Savior’s face,
Will there be a royal welcome,
For a sinner saved by grace?
Will I join the angel harpers
In their everlasting song?
Will I hear the shout of glory,
By the blood washed, mighty throng?

Refrain

Yes, I’ll hear Him bid me welcome,
Feel His kiss upon my brow;
I shall hear His voice so tender,
Thou art safely landed now.
I’ll shake hands with all my loved ones,
And before the throne I’ll stand,
And we’ll sing and shout together,
Singing, Glory to the Lamb.

Refrain
