O the Crown, the Glory-Crown

Verse 1:
Weary gleaner in the field,
poor or plenty be the yield,
Labor on for the Master nothing fearing,
There’s a promise of reward
at the coming of the Lord,
Unto all them that love His appearing.

Refrain:
O the crown…..the glory crown
O the day, the happy day is nearing,
When the crown of rich reward
shall be given by the Lord,
Unto all them that love His appearing.

Verse 2:
Jesus now has gone above
to complete His work of love,
His return day by day is surely nearing,
When His own He will receive
and a welcome He will give,
Unto all them that love His appearing.

Verse 3:
O how light will seem the grief,
and the toilsome way how brief,
When a crown in the glory we are wearing,
O the rapture who can tell
as for ever there we dwell,
With redeem’d ones that lov’d His appearing.

G.M.J. and James McGranahan
