Prayer
Text by Mary Baker Eddy
Music by Peter Link

Thoughts unspoken are not unknown
to the divine Mind.
Desire is prayer;
and no loss can occur
from trusting God with our desires,
that they may be moulded and exalted
and exalted!
before they take form
in words and in deeds.

God is not moved by the breath of praise
to do more than He has already done,
nor can the infinite do less
than bestow all good, …

God is Love.
Can we ask Him to be more?
God is intelligence.
Can we inform the infinite Mind
of anything He does not already comprehend?
“God is Love.”
More than this we cannot ask,
higher we cannot look,
farther we cannot go.

Thoughts unspoken are not unknown
to the divine Mind.
Desire is prayer;
and no loss can occur
from trusting God with our desires,
that they may be moulded and exalted
and exalted!
before they take form
in words and in deeds.

The unspoken desire
does bring us nearer the source
of all existence and blessedness.

God is Love.
Can we ask Him to be more?
God is intelligence.
Can we inform the infinite Mind
of anything He does not already comprehend?
“God is Love.”
More than this we cannot ask,
higher we cannot look,
farther we cannot go.
