​Beautiful

This song is by Loudon Wainwright III, features Lucy Wainwright Roche and appears on the album High Wide & Handsome: The Charlie Poole Project (2009).

Beautiful robes so white, beautiful land of light
Beautiful home so bright where there shall come no night
Beautiful crown I'll wear, shining with stars o'er there
Yonder in mansions fair, gather us there

Beautiful robes, beautiful land
Beautiful home, beautiful band
Beautiful crown, shining so fair
Beautiful mansion bright, gather us there

Beautiful thought to me, we shall forever be
Thine in eternity when from this world we're free
Free from its toil and care, heavenly joys to share
Let me cross over there, this is my prayer

Beautiful robes, beautiful land
Beautiful home, beautiful band
Beautiful crown, shining so fair
Beautiful mansion bright, gather us there

Beautiful things on high over in yonder sky
Thus I shall leave this shore, counting my treasures o'er
Where we shall never die, carry me by and by
Never to sorrow more, heavenly store

Beautiful robes, beautiful land
Beautiful home, beautiful band
Beautiful crown, shining so fair
Beautiful mansion bright, gather us there
