A favorite text by Mary Baker Eddy, the accompaniment evokes the ‘brother birds’ of the text, twining around a graceful, soaringmelody, lifting it higher as the thought becomes more ecstatic.

Lyrics

Love
Words from a poem by Mary Baker Eddy

Brood oʼer us with Thy sheltering wing
ʻNeath 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 wisdomʼs rid 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 fear,

Through God, who gave that word of might
Which swelled creationʼs lay:
“Let there be light, and there was light.”
What chased the clouds away?
ʻTwas 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.
