Lyrics

O’ER WAITING HARPSTRINGS

Poem by Mary Baker Eddy
Music by Daniel Burton

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, nevermore!
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.
