These Are the Crowns

Lyrics

Verse 1
These are the crowns that we shall wear
When all thy saints are crown’d;
These are the palms that we shall bear
On yonder holy ground.

Verse 2
For off as yet, reserved in heaven,
Above the veiling sky,
They sparkle like the stars of even
To hope’s far-piercing eye.

Verse 3
These are the robes, unsoiled and white,
Which then we shall put on,
When foremost, ’midst the sons of light,
We sit on yonder throne.

Verse 4
Then welcome toil, and care, and pain?
And welcome sorrow, too!
All toil is rest, all grief is gain,
With such a prize in view.
