Lyrics from Deseret Sunday School Songs, 1909
1. What is fairer than the roses
Blooming in the summer time?
What hath charms far more enchanting
Than the poet's sweetest rhyme?
'Tis the flow'r of sweet affection
Blooming in a loving heart,
And the words of sweet assurance
Which the loving lips impart.
2. What is fairer than the dewdrop
Glist'ning in the morning sun?
Or the glowing rays of sunset
When the day is nearly done?
'Tis the glance of pure affection
Beaming from a loving eye,
Fairer far than Nature's beauties,
Graces that can never die.
