2. E'en as a lovely flower [sung text not yet checked]

E'en as a lovely flower,
So fair, so pure thou art;
I gaze on thee, and sadness
Comes stealing o'er my heart.
 
My hands I fain had folded
Upon thy soft brown hair,
Praying that God may keep thee
So lovely, pure and fair.

3. The violets blue [sung text checked 1 time]

The violets blue of the eyes divine,
And the rose of the cheeks as red as wine,
[And]1 the lilies white of the hands so fine,
They flourish and flourish from year to year,
[And]1 only the heart is withered and sere.
