Love

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 fear
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.
