O when shall I see Je-sus,

And reign with him a-bove,

To drink the flowing foun-tain

Of ev-er-lasting love!

When shall I be de-liv-ered 

From this vain world of sin,

And with my blessed Je-sus

Drink endless pleasures in.

And with my blessed Sa-viour 

Drink endless pleasures in.

Drink endless pleasures in,

Drink endless pleasures in.

But now I am a soldier,

By 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.

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 both adieu,

And you, my friends, prove faithful,

And on your way pursue.

And if you meet with troubles 

And trials on the way,

Then cast your care on Jesus,

And don't forget to pray;

Gird on the heavenly armour

Of faith, and hope, and love,

And when your warfare's ended

You'll reign with him above.

Oh! do not be discouraged,

For Jesus is your friend,

And if you long for knowledge

On him you may depend;

Neither will he upbraid you,

Though often you request;

He'll give you grace to conquer,

And take you home to rest.
