Make me no gaudy chaplet,
Weave it of simple flowers;
Seek them in lowly vallies,
After the gentle showers.
Bring me the dark red roses,
Gay in the sunshine glowing,
Bring me the pale moss rosebud,
Beneath the fresh leaves growing.
Bring not the proudeyed blossom,
Darling of Eastern daughters,
Bring me the snowy lily,
Floating on silent waters.
Gems of the lowly valley,
Buds which the leaves are shading;
Lilies of peaceful waters,
Emblems be mine unfading.
Lilies of peaceful waters,
Emblems be mine, be mine.
