Take comfort Christians
When your friend in Jesus
Fell asleep, their better being never ends
Why then dejected weep

If we believe that Jesus died and rose again,
Even so them also which sleep in Jesus will God bring with him

The voice of the ones we loved are still
My hope is in Christ

The crown is present in many configurations: a depiction of angels offering a crown to those on Earth, or one of the more common depictions is a cross inside a crown. The cross is symbolic of Christian faith representing Christ’s suffering and represents the eternal reward of life everlasting. When the cross and crown symbols are together they represent the reward of eternal life after death for those who believe in the crucified Savior. “Be thou faithful unto death and I will give thee the Crown of Life.” (Rev. 2:10)

with cross

They broke in Jesus and are blessed
Now calm their slumbers are
From suffering and from soon released
And freed from every snare.

Waiting until he comes

Early crowns were made out of plants and derived their meaning from those herbs. As men fashioned crowns out of more enduring substances like gold, they added little spikes to call to mind the power and authority of the sun.
