Chris Turner leads ‘I Shall Wear a Golden Crown’

Chris Turner leads a rousing 8-minute a cappella gospel song at a Church of Christ congregation in Oklahoma City, from 2009.

The song was composed by Austin Miles (1868-1946) and appears in nearly 30 hymnals. It’s often known the by the alternate title “When I Get Home.”

Thanks to Ron for this great find!

1 I shall wear a golden crown,
When I get home;
I shall lay my burdens down,
When I get home;
Clad in robes of glory,
I shall sing the story
Of the Lord who bought me,
When I get home.

Refrain:
When I get home,
When I get home,
All sorrow will be over,
When I get home;
When I get home,
When I get home,
All sorrow will be over,
When I get home.

2 All the darkness will be past,
When I get home;
I shall see the light at last,
When I get home;
Light from heaven streaming,
O’er my pathway beaming,
Ever guides me onward
Till I get home. [Refrain]

3 I shall see my Saviour’s face,
When I get home;
Sing again of saving grace,
When I get home;
I shall stand before him;
Gladly I’ll adore him;
Ever to be with him,
When I get home. [Refrain]
