All Things Lovely

 Like a jewel in the dust
Like true beauty that does not rust
Is a woman with all things lovely

Her zeal is infinitely strong
She scorns the slightest wrong
'Tis the woman with all things lovely

Her heart is discreet and pure
Upon Christ's standard she is sure
Stands the woman with all things lovely

Her voice so soft whispers love
Her gentleness was given from above
Yes, 'tis the woman with all things lovely


Daily she walks in prayerful thought
Her sinful price Christ has bought
'Tis the woman with all things lovely

Demure and kind since birth
Though somber, she has mirth
'Tis the woman with all things lovely

Her beauty comes from inside out
She does her duty without a pout
'Tis the woman with all things lovely

Many words could speak her praise
But she wishes our hands to raise
To the God who makes all things lovely
