1. Pleasures that earth can give
Never are unalloyed,
Like to the happiness
That is in Heav’n enjoyed!
What are earth’s garments gay,
Often so proudly shown?
Nothing compared to you,
Beautiful robe and crown!

Refrain
Beautiful robe! Beautiful crown!
Beautiful robe! Beautiful crown!
What are the mines of earth?
What is the world’s renown?
Nothing compared to you,
Beautiful robe and crown!

2. Fashion’s adornments are
Ever with money bought,
Heavenly garments bright,
Only by faith are sought!
What are the mines of earth?
What is the world’s renown?
Nothing compared to you,
Beautiful robe and crown! [Refrain]

3. Land of the white-robed throng
And of the harp and palm,
After the storms of life
Thine is a blessèd calm!
There may our every name
Surely be written down!
Striving are we for you,
Beautiful robe and crown! [Refrain]
