1 Peter 5:4
"And when the chief Shepherd shall appear,
ye shall receive a crown of glory that fadeth not away."

          Jesus may come today, Glad day!  Glad day!
          And I would see my Friend;
          Dangers and troubles would end,
          If Jesus should come today.

            Chorus
            Glad day!  Glad day!
            Is it the crowning day?
            I'll live for today, nor anxious be,
            Jesus, my Lord, I soon shall see;
            Glad day!  Glad day!
            Is it the crowning day?

          I may go home today, Glad day!  Glad day!
          Seemeth I hear their song;
          Hail to the radiant throng!
          If I should go home today.

            Chorus
            Glad day!  Glad day!
            Is it the crowning day?
            I'll live for today, nor anxious be,
            Jesus, my Lord, I soon shall see;
            Glad day!  Glad day!
            Is it the crowning day?

          Why should I anxious be?  Glad day!  Glad day!
          Lights appear on the shore,
          Storms will affright never more,
          For He is "at hand" today.

            Chorus
            Glad day!  Glad day!
            Is it the crowning day?
            I'll live for today, nor anxious be,
            Jesus, my Lord, I soon shall see;
            Glad day!  Glad day!
            Is it the crowning day?

          Faithful I'll be today, Glad day!  Glad day!
          And I will freely tell,
          Why I should love Him so well,
          For He is my all today.

            Chorus
            Glad day!  Glad day!
            Is it the crowning day?
            I'll live for today, nor anxious be,
            Jesus, my Lord, I soon shall see;
            Glad day!  Glad day!
            Is it the crowning day?
