Earthly Monarchs Wear A Crown


Earthly monarchs wear a crown,
And are robed in gorgeous hue;
But a brighter robe and crown
Is reserved in heav’n for you.

Chorus:
Crowns of gold, pure gold,
Robes of white, pure white,
We shall wear forever there,
In yonder world of light.

Earthly crowns, tho’ lustrous now,
Soon will dim and pale away;
But the crown which Jesus gives
Never, never can decay. [Chorus]

Earthly robes, tho’ pure and white,
Soon are soiled and stained with sin;
But the robes which Jesus gives,
Will for evermore be clean. [Chorus]
