1. My Lord has garments so wondrous fine, And myrrh their texture fills; Its fragrance reached to this heart of mine With joy my being thrills.

Refrain: Out of the ivory palaces, Into a world of woe, Only His great eternal love Made my Savior go.

2. His life had also its sorrows sore, For aloes had a part; And when I think of the cross He bore, My eyes with teardrops start.

3. His garments, too, were in cassia dipped, With healing in a touch; In paths of sin had my feet e’er slipped— He’s saved me from its clutch.

4. In garments glorious He will come, To open wide the door; And I shall enter my heav’nly home, To dwell forevermore.
