A ROSE, a lily, and the Face of Christ
Have all our hearts sufficed:
For He is Rose of Sharon nobly born,
Our Rose without a thorn;
And He is Lily of the Valley, He,
Most sweet in purity.
But when we come to name Him as He is,
Godhead, Perfection, Bless,
All tongues fall silent, while pure hearts alone
Complete their orison.
