Yup. Here's the full quote:

Hope is like a harebell, trembling from its birth,
Love is like a rose, the joy of all the earth,
Faith is like a lily, lifted high and white,
Love is like a lovely rose, the world’s delight.
Harebells and sweet lilies show a thornless growth,
But the rose with all its thorns excels them both.

You do get some weird misreadings on here. Like all the quotes sourced to "Irish Murdoch."
