Love Does Guide

Terry J. Barham  •  Digital Sheet Music (DSM)


No matter how difficult the challenges we face may be, divine Love’s angels are there to guide us, lift us up. We can find peace and harmony. A gentle three-beat feel in section I and the rise and fall of its phrases give place to expansive harmonies and a strong climax in section II. Organ also works effectively as accompaniment.

Love Does Guide

Text: Mary Baker Eddy
Composer: Terry J. Barham

It matters not what be thy lot,
So Love doth guide;
For storm or shine, pure peace is thine,
What e’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 earth-bound wake,
God’s glorified!
Who doth His will–His likeness still–
Is satisfied.
