Hymn/Song Information

O what is beauty’s power It flourishes and dies




O, what is beauty’s power?
It flourishes and dies;
Will the cold earth its silence break,
To tell how soft, how smooth a cheek
Beneath its surface lies?


The most beloved on earth,
Not long survives the day;
So music passed is obsolete,
And yet ‘twas sweet, ‘twas passing sweet,
But now ‘tis gone away.


Then since this world is vain,
And volatile and fleet
Why should I lay up earthly joys,
Where rust corrupts and moth destroys,
And cares and sorrow eat?
