"HANG ON TO YOUR CROWN"

Verse 1
Winds of adversity, they buffet you,
Hang on or let go, you don't know what to do.
Tempest and trials with storm clouds and rain;
Hang on with all you've got, in Jesus' name.

Chorus 1
Hang on to your crown.
Hang on to your crown.
Hang on to your crown.
Hold fast to what thou hast,
Hang on to your crown.

Verse 2
Heavy is the battle, seems to rage without end,
You wonder who's got it, as you fight to the end.
Great is the struggle as you pull to the light,
Help me, Jesus, not to give up the fight.

Chorus 2
Hang on to your crown.
[Hang on, hang on to your crown.]
Hang on to your crown.
[Lift up the hands that hang down.]

Hang on to your crown.
[Ooh, stand your ground.]
Hold fast to what thou hast,
Hang on to your crown.

Verse 3
Not by power nor by might do we stand,
But by His Spirit, upheld by His hand,
We'll overcome the Evil One and his plan
With the testimony of Jesus and the blood of the Lamb.

Chorus 3
Hang on to your crown.
[Hang on, hang on to your crown.]
Hang on to your crown.
[Lift up the hands that hang down.]
Lift up those hands that hang down.
[Ooh, stand your ground.]
Hold fast to what thou hast,
Hang on to your crown.

Ending
Hang on to your crown.
[Hang on, hang on to your crown.]
Won't you hang on?
[Lift up the hands that hang down.]
You gotta stand your ground.
[Ooh, stand yourground.]
Oh, hold fast to what thou hast,
Hang on to your crown.
[Hang on.] Oh, yeah!
[Hang on to your crown.]
[Lift up the hands that hang down.]
Lift up those hands that hang down.
[Ooh, stand your ground.]
Ooh, stand your ground.
[Hold fast to what thou hast,
Hang on to your crown.]
Hold fast to what thou hast,
Hang on to your crown.
