Words from a poem in the Christian Science Sentinel, arr. by John F. Wilson
Created by God in His infinite good,
We are held in love’s Father-Motherhood.
Man pure and holy, upright and free
Abides in Soul harmoniously.
Intact, under Spirit’s law,
God’s beloved, perfect idea.
Dear Father, I thank you that I and mine
And all express Your nature divine.
We awake to the Truth which You are revealing:
Christ, God’s idea, bringing comfort and healing.
In gratitude, Father, all glorious above,
I’ll serve You forever, returning Your love.
