Come, and I will show you what is beautiful.
See how she sits upon her mossy stem, like the queen of all the flowers!
She is the delight of every eye.
She is beautiful, but there is a fairer one than she.
He that made the rose is more beautiful than the rose;
He is all lovely;
He is the delight of every heart.
(Words by Letitia Anna Barbauld, Hymns in Prose for Children, 1781)
