Thou Art a Jewel

Thou art a jewel
In God's eternal ring...
Set by God's own tool,
O lovely, created thing!

You scintillate as set,
You sparkle with His grace!
Each virtue thine a facet,
With its reflective face...

Your pure and honest being,
And humility shine so bright!
There's prudence and kindly seeing,
Sparkling in our sight!

O jewel of beauty,
Engraved "Ave M,"
You're polished by prayer and duty,
You're a pure and precious gem!
