Author: Joseph Horatio Chant [
This lovely lily, so pure and white,
Seems covered o’er with celestial light;
As if it grew on the “Tree of Life,”
And not down here, in this world of strife;
Too pure for earth it now seems to be;
My queenly wife, it was meant for thee.
Its wax-like petals with graceful bend,
Drink in the sunbeams as they descend;
And lade with fragrance the heated air
As it floats around us everywhere;
And the world grows better by its advent,
This lovely lily, so kindly sent.
