I see I have my own reward,
When Christ first appeared to me;
I am elevated above the horde,
By His truth, I am set free.
But this is only one of many,
To be gained in my Lord;
Assurance of heaven belongs to me,
This one peace, its own reward.
Plus a crown awaits for this child;
For withstanding this world’s strife;
How could I’ve known while in the wild,
This, my own eternal life.
Yet, for all that I’ve been given,
One reward stands above the rest;
All else is rubbish in fancy ribbons,
For knowing Him is the best.
