to see the beauty of Jesus;
Thine ears to hear His faintest whisperings;
Thy lips to adore, praise, bless,
petition and love Him;
Thine arms to hug Him to my soul;
Thy heart to hold Him in time and eternity.
Let our thoughts become lilies for Mary's shrine,
and our hearts tabernacle lamps for His sanctuary.
