Lyrics: William Cowper

Sweet stream that winds through yonder glade,
Apt emblem of a virtuous maid,
Silent and chaste, she steals along,
Far from the world's gay busy throng;
With gentle yet prevailing force.
Intent upon her destined course;
Graceful and useful all she does;
Blessing and blessed where'er she goes,
Pure-bosomed as that wat'ry glass,
And heav'n reflected in her face.
