The Sculptor

A classical/bluesy musical approach to the act of controlling one’s thinking process. Think: Porgy and Bess if you want to identify the style … Think about the fact that “We are all sculptors, working at various forms, moulding and chiseling thought.”

The Sculptor
Text by Mary Baker Eddy
Music by Peter Link

The sculptor turns
from the marble to his model
in order to perfect his conception.
We are all sculptors,
working at various forms,
moulding and chiseling thought.
What is the model before mortal mind?
Is it imperfection,
joy, sorrow,
sin, suffering?
Have you accepted the mortal model?
Are you reproducing it?

The sculptor turns
from the marble to his model
in order to perfect his conception.
We must first turn our gaze
in the right direction,
and then walk that way.

We must form perfect models in thought
and look at them continually,
or we shall never carve them out
in grand and noble lives.

The sculptor turns
from the marble to his model
in order to perfect his conception.
We are all sculptors,
working at various forms,
moulding and chiseling thought.

We are all sculptors,
moulding and chiseling thought.
