What musical riffs do we let sweep across our consciousness each day? Are we willing to let the multitude of whispering angels in? If so, we can be grounded “on the rock”, and willing to let God lead us in His direction.

Mary Baker Eddy Lyrics
O’er Waiting Harpstrings

1.
O’er waiting harpstrings of the mind
There sweeps a strain,
Low, sad, and sweet, whose measures bind
The power of pain,

2.
And wake a white-winged angel throng
Of thoughts, illumed
By faith and breathed in raptured song,
With love perfumed.

3.
Then His unveiled, sweet mercies show
Life’s burdens light.
I kiss the cross, and wake to know
A world more bright.

4.
And o’er earth’s troubled, angry sea
I see Christ walk,
And come to me, and tenderly,
Divinely talk.

5.
Thus Truth engrounds me on the rock,
Upon Life’s shore,
‘Gainst which the winds and waves and shock,
Oh, nevermore!

6.
From tired joy and grief afar,
And nearer Thee,
Father, where Thine own children are,
I love to be.

7.
My prayer, some daily good to do
To Thine, for Thee;
An offering pure of Love,
Whereto God leadeth me.
