1. O when shall I see Jesus,
    And reign with Him above,
And drink the flowing fountain
    Of everlasting love?
When shall I be deliver’d
    From this vain world of sin,
And with my blessed Jesus,
    Drink endless pleasures in?

2. But now I am a soldier;
    My Captain’s gone before—
He’s given me my orders,
    And tells me not to fear;
And if I hold out faithful,
    A crown of life He’ll give,
And all His valiant soldiers
    Eternal life shall have.

3. Through grace I am determined
    To conquer though I die;
And then away to Jesus
    On wings of love I’ll fly.
Farewell to sin and sorrow,
    I bid them all adieu:
And you, my friends, prove faithful,
    And on your way pursue.

4. And if you meet with trials
    And troubles on the way,
Cast all your care on Jesus,
    And don’t forget to pray:
Gird on the heav’nly armor
    Of faith and hope and love;
And when your warfare’s ended
    You’ll reign with Him above.

5. O do not be discouraged,
    For Jesus is your friend,
And if you lack for knowledge
    He’ll not refuse to lend;
Neither will he upbraid you,
    Though often you request;
He’ll give you grace to conquer,
    And take you home to rest.
