A Crown Awaits!

King Charles coronation calls attention to the crown that awaits all Christians

A crown awaits for England’s king
as church bells peal and choirs sing
their anthems asking God to save
this one who mounts the throne.

This treasured crown bedecked with gems
will rest upon the head of him
who waited patiently in line
until it was his turn.

But there’s another crown we’re told,
a wreath of beauty made of gold
that’s promised all who persevere
who run the race of faith.

This crown of righteousness awaits
that’s marked by grace. As St. Paul states
our royal status is derived
by being clothed in Christ.
