True Beauty


Beauty from lovely hair
Beauty from golden jewelry
Beauty from fine clothes
Is not true beauty! ! !

True beauty is from inner self
Unfading beauty of a gentle
And quiet spirit
Which is of great worth in God's sight.

This is the path, holy women
From the past, who put hope in God
Would make themselves Beautiful
True Beauty

That from the nunnery
Of thy chaste breast and quiet mind
To war and arms I fly.

True, a new mistress now I chase,
