Peace - Poem by Jacobus Revius

Beautiful is gold, most beautiful of all metals.
Beautiful is alabaster and the airy crystals;
Beautiful is light, when the sun is about to set,
Beautiful is ivory and the rosy red coral;
Beautiful is May, with its countless flowers,
Beautiful is the sheer cloth with its prize of sores;
But that which must carry above all the crown—
Beautiful is Peace, most beautiful thing on Earth!—
