WILL THERE BE ANY STARS IN MY CROWN

(G) I am thinking today of that (C ) beautiful land 
I shall (D7) reach when the sun goeth (G) down; 
When through wonderful grace, by my (C) Savior I stand, 
Will there (D7) be any stars in my (G) crown?

REFRAIN:  
(G) Will there be any stars, any stars in my crown, 
When at evening the sun goeth (D7) down?
When I (G) wake with the blest, In those (C ) mansions of rest, 
Will there (G) be any (D7) stars  in my (G) crown?

In the strength of the Lord, let me labor and pray, 
Let me watch as a winner of souls
That bright stars may be mine in the glorious day, 
When His praise like the sea billows roll.

Oh what joy will it be, when His face I behold, 
Living gems at His feet to lay own; 
It would sweeten my bliss in the city of gold, 
Should there be any stars in my crown.
