Be thou faithful unto death, and I will give thee a crown of life.@Revelation 2:10

Harriette Waters, in Revival Hymns, a Collection of New and Standard Hymns, by Daniel B. Towner & Charles M. Alexander (Chicago, Illinois: Bible Institute Colportage Association, 1905).

A. E. Lind (🔊 pdf nwc).

Bugle calls are ringing out,
Forward is the battle shout,
See where floats the conqu’ring sign,
Onward to the war divine!

Refrain

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!
Wear a crown, wear a crown, away over Jordan!
And when the battle’s over, we shall wear a crown
In the new Jerusalem!

Sound the charge against the foe,
Lay the hosts of error low;
In His name, victorious King,
Let the song of triumph ring!

Refrain

Fight the fight of faith and love,
Looking unto Him above;
Loyal soldiers, do and dare,
Your Commander’s joy to share.
