O Serene Face

O serene face
Unscathed by Death
Youthful in years, in wisdom old
An innocent that holds
a knowledge not of this world

O face of the blessed
Always humble, always quiet
Though meek is she
As meek is He
That serene face
is as an army
in battle array

O perfect adorer
Who magnifies the Lord forever
Show us the secrets
in your serene face
Your fiat, o beauty, teach us
From sin, guard us
And to your Son, lead us


This poem is partly inspired by this beautiful article.
