"DON'T PUT DOWN YOUR CROWN"

Verse 1a
Life seems tough, the going looks rough,
You wonder if you'll make it one day more.
You're weary in your mind, wanna leave it all behind;
Well, I too have felt like walkin' out the door.

Verse 1b
But to whom shall we go, Lord?
You a lone have the words of li-ife
And lo-ve, I hear You sayin'....

Chorus 1
"Hold on to your crown, don't ever put it down.
Plant your seed by faith, though it dies in this ground.
And if you can't see it now, someday your fruit will abound.
So trust God for grace, while you hang on to your place--
Hold on to your crown!"

Verse 2a
Lord, Your life was rough, the going was tough,
And those who chose to stay with You were few.
But You stuck from day to day, let Your Father have His way;
You did the job He sent You here to do.

Verse 2b
So I know that You'll help us run this race,
Through the breakings that are making us stronger.
And it won't be much longer!

Chorus 2
"Hold on to your crown, don't ever put it down.
Plant your seed by faith, though it dies in this ground.
And if you can't see it now, someday your fruit will abound.
So trust God for grace, while you hang on to your place--
Hold on to your crown!"

Lead

Bridge
The life of faith ain't all sugar and spice;
You might even feel you're the "daily sacrifice".
But you're storin' up joys Above
Through every little act of love.

Chorus 3
"Just hold on to your crown, don't ever put it down.
Plant your seed by faith, though it dies in this ground.
And if you can't see it now, someday your fruit will abound.
So trust God for grace, while you hang on to your place

Chorus 4
And keep holdin' on [hold on to your crown],
Plant your seed by faith, though it dies in this ground.
And if you can't see it now, someday your fruit will abound.
[Hold on, hold on!]
So trust God for grace, while you hang on to your place
Hold on to your crown!
Hold on to your crown!"
