Weed doesn't look like a "Weed". What is it? (White Lilly-ish flower)

Recently a thick-stemmed "weed" appeared in my front lawn. It was quite different than the other invaders we have around here and looked like the end was a large bloom waiting to happen, so I left it alone. A day or two after I noticed it it did indeed blossom into a large white flower with six thin petals. Without having paid much notice of lilies myself (so maybe it's a bad description) I'd say it looks a bit lilly-ish to my untrained eye.

I have no idea what it is, but I'd very much like to. If it's a weed it's certainly an attractive one. So, anyone know what this thing is? (Sorry for the blurry photos.)
