1 Hark! the lilies whisper
Tenderly and low,
"In our grace and beauty,
See how fair we grow."
Hark! the roses speaking,
Telling all abroad
Their sweet, wondrous story
Of the love of God.

2 And if toil and trouble
Be our lot below,
Think upon the lilies,
See how fair they grow.
Flowers of field and garden--
All their voices meet;
And their Maker's praises,
To our souls repeat.
