Christ My Refuge
Music by Nicholas P. Schliapin
Lyrics by Mary Baker Eddy
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 see 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,
From tired joy and gried afar,
And nearer Three, —
Father, where Thine own children are, I love to be.
My prayer some daily good to do
To thine, for Three;
An offering pure of Love, whereto God leadeth me.
