Representative Text

1 There is a beauty born of love,
More bright than sunshine beaming,
More radiant than the stars above,
Or gold and diamonds gleaming.

Oh, beauty, bright and fair, divine,
The world has known thee never;
Oh, may thy light around me shine,
And guide my way forever.

2 That beauty beams from Zion’s mount,
And glows in Bethle’m’s story,
Illumes Samaria’s sacred fount,
And makes the Cross our glory. [Chorus]

3 That beauty crowns the lowly saint,
Whose heart its light is cheering,
Who, toiling on, shall never faint,
But wait the Lord’s appearing. [Chorus]

4 And when the light of life grows dim,
And fades all earthly pleasure
The beauty of the Lord shall win
An everlasting treasure. [Chorus]
