The Lord’s Prayer and its Spiritual Interpretation

Music by Ed Bogas
Words from The Bible (Matthew 6: 9-13) and Mary Baker Eddy

Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be Thy name
Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven
Give us this day our daily bread and forgive us our debts, as we forgive our
And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us form evil
For Thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, forever.

Our Father-Mother God, all harmonious
Adorable One
Thou art ever present
Enable us to know
God is omnipotent, supreme
Give us grace; feed the famished affections
And Love is reflected in love
And God leadeth us not into temptation
But delivereth us from sin, disease, and death
For God is infinite, all-power
All Life, Truth, Love, over all and All.

Christ My Refuge

Music by Désirée Goyette
Words by Mary Baker Eddy

O’er waiting harpstrings of the mind There sweeps a strain
Low, sad and sweet whose measures bind The power of pain
And wake a white-winged angel throng Of thoughts illumed By faith
And breathed in raptured song With love perfumed

Then his unveiled, sweet mercies show life’s burdens light
I kiss the cross, and wake to know A world more bright
And o’er earth’s troubled, angry sea I see Christ walk
And come to me, and tenderly, Divinely talk

Thus Truth engrounds me on the rock, Upon Life’s shore
‘Gainst which the winds and waves can shock, Oh, never more!

From tired joy and grief afar, And nearer Thee,
Father, where Thine own children are, I love to be
My prayer, some daily good to do To thine, for Thee
An offering pure of Love, whereto God leadeth me.


Music by Désirée Goyette
Words by Mary Baker Eddy

Brood o’er us with Thy shelt’ring wing ‘Neath which our spirits blend
Like brother birds, that soar and sing, And on the same branch bend
The arrow that doth wound the dove
Darts not from those who watch and love

If thou the bending reed wouldst break By thought or word unkind
Pray that his spirit you partake, Who loved and healed mankind
Seek holy thoughts and heavenly strain
That make men one in love remain

Learn, too, that wisdom’s rod is given For faith to kiss and know
That greetings glorious from high heaven, Whence joys supernal flow
Come from that Love, divinely near, Which chastens pride and earthborn
Through God, who gave that word of might Which swelled creation’s lay
“Let there be light, and there was light.” What chased the clouds away?
‘Twas Love whose finger traced aloud A bow of promise on the cloud

Thou to whose power our hope we give, Free us from human strife
Fed by Thy love divine we live, For Love alone is Life
And life most sweet as heart to heart
Speaks kindly when we meet and part.

Feed My Sheep

Music by Désirée Goyette
Words by Mary Baker Eddy

Shepherd, show me how to go O’er the hillside steep
How to gather, how to sow, How to feed Thy sheep
I will listen for Thy voice, Lest my footsteps stray
I will follow and rejoice All the rugged way

Thou wilt bind the stubborn will, Wound the callous breast
Make self-righteousness be still, Break earth’s stupid rest
Strangers on a barren shore, Lab’ring long and lone
We would enter by the door, And Thou know’st Thine own

So, when day grows dark and cold, Tear or triumph harms
Lead Thy lambkins to the fold, Take them in Thine arms
Feed the hungry, heal the heart, Till the morning’s beam
White as wool ere they depart, Shepherd, wash them clean.

Communion Hymn

Music by Désirée Goyette
Words by Mary Baker Eddy

Saw ye my Saviour? Heard ye the glad sound?
Felt ye the power of the Word?
‘Twas the Truth that made us free, And was found by you and me
In the life and the love of our Lord

Mourner, it calls you, “Come to my bosom,
Love wipes your tears all away
And will lift the shade of gloom, And for you make radiant room
Midst the glories of one endless day”

Sinner, it calls you, “Come to this fountain,
Cleanse the foul senses within
“tis the Spirit that makes pure, That exalts thee, and will cure
All thy sorrow, and sickness and sin”

Strongest deliverer, friend of the friendless
Life of all being divine
Thou the Christ, and not the creed; Thou the Truth in thought and deed;
Thou the water, the bread, and the wine.

Christmas Morn

Music by Désirée Goyette
Words by Mary Baker Eddy

Blest Christmsa morn, though murky clouds Pursue thy way
Thy light was born where storm enshrouds
Nor dawn nor day!

Dear Christ, forever here an near
No cradle song, No natal hour and mother’s tear
To thee belong

Thou God idea, Life encrowned, The Bethlehem babe
Beloved, replete, by flesh embound
Was but thy shade!

Thou gentle beam of living Love, And deathless Life!
Truth infinite, so far above all mortal strife
Or cruel creed, or earthborn taint
Fill us today With all thou art be thou our saint,
Our stay, always.


Music by Désirée Goyette
Words by Mary Baker Eddy

It matters not what be thy lot
So Love doth guide
For storm or shine, pure peace is thine
Whate’er betide

And of these stones, or tyrants’ thrones
God able is
To raise up seed in thought and deed
To faithful His

Aye, darkling sense, arise, go hence!
Our God is good
False fears are foes, truth tatters those
When understood

Love looseth thee, and lifteth me
Ayont hate’s thrall
There Life is light and wisdom might
And God is All

The centuries break, the earthbound wake
God’s glorified
Who doth His will His likeness still
Is satisfied

Mother’s Evening Prayer

Music by Désirée Goyette
Words by Mary Baker Eddy

O gentle presence, peace and joy and power
O Life divine, that owns each waiting hour
Thou Love that guards the nestling’s faltering flight
Keep thou my child on upward wing tonight

Love is our refuge; only with mine eye
Can I behold the snare, the pit, the fall
His habitation high is here and nigh
His arm encircles me and mine and all

O make me glad for every scalding tear
For hope deferred, ingratitude, disdain!
Wait, and love more for every hate, and fear
No ill, since God is good, and loss is gain

Beneath the shadow of His mighty wing
In that sweet secret of the narrow way
Seeking and finding, with the angels sing
“Lo, I am with you alway,” watch and pray

No snare no flowler, pestilence or pain
No night drops down upon the troubled breast
When heaven’s aftersmile earth’s teardrops gain
And mother finds her home and heav’nly rest.

The Scientific Statement of Being
And correlative scripture

Music by Ed Bogas
Words based on The Bible (I John 3: 1-3) and Mary Baker Eddy

There is no life, truth, intelligence nor substance in matter
All is infinite Mind and its infinite manifestation
For God is All in all
Spirit is immortal Truth
Matter is mortal error
Spirit is the real and eternal
Matter is the unreal and temporal
Spirit is God, and man is His image and likeness
Therefore man is not material
He is spiritual.

Behold, what manner of love the Father hath bestowed upon us
That we should be called the sons of God
Therefore the world knoweth us not
Because it knew him not
Beloved, now are we the sons of God
And it doth not yet appear what we shall be
But we know that, when he shall appear
We shall be like him for we shall see him as he is
And every man that hath this hope in him
Purifieth himself, even as he is pure.
