    What Makes Me Love My Mary

    What makes me love my Mary?
    Tis not mere outward grace
    For I have gazed on girls as fair
    Of figure and of face.
    And while I did admire them much
    My heart with love they failed to touch.

    What makes me love my Mary?
    What is her special charm?
    Do dresses fine with gems combine
    To take my heart by storm?
    No: deep impressions on my heart
    Are made by neither gems, nor art.

    What makes me love my Mary
    With fond fidelity?
    I only know I love her so –
    The same as she loves me
    And I suspect ‘twas God’s design
    That I’d be hers, and she’d be mine.
