48. Bright Crown

1 Ye valiant soldiers of the cross,
Ye happy, praying band,
Though in this world you suffer loss,
You’ll reach fair Canaan’s land.

Let us never mind the scoffs nor the frowns of the world,
For we all have the cross to bear;
It will only make the crown the brighter to shine,
When we have the crown to wear.

2 All earthly pleasures we’ll forsake
When heav’n appears in view;
In Jesus’ strength we’ll undertake
To fight our passage through. [Refrain]

3 O what a glorious shout there’ll be
When we arrive at home!
Our friends and Jesus we shall see,
And God will say, “Well done.” [Refrain]
