Hymn selection ~ Wednesday, May 12
(Roberta B. Lynch)
Science, the angel with the
God’s gift, the glory of the risen Lord;
Light of the world, in whose light we shall see
Father and perfect Son, blest unity;
Calm of Shekinah where hope
Harbor of refuge till the storm be past;
Sweet, secret place where God and men do meet,
Horeb whereon we walk with
Place of communion with the
Lamb of God,
Fold where the sheep must pass beneath His rod;
Ark where the dove may close her faltering wings,
Love’s law divine that makes us priests and kings;
Loosener of prison bands at
Of self-forged chains that fall through Love’s all-power;
Christ’s morning meal by joyous Galilee:
Science, thou dost fulfill all prophecy.
(Margaret Glenn Matters)
O Jesus, our dear Master,
Your works, now understood,
Reveal their full effulgence
Through love and brotherhood.
Today Christ’s precious Science
Your healing power makes plain:
With joy may all obey you
And cast out sin and pain.
The Christ, eternal manhood,
As God’s own Son beloved,
A tender ever-presence
Within each heart is proved.
O God, our Father-Mother,
Your name we see expressed
By man, who in Your Science
Is perfect, holy, blessed.
O Science, God-sent message
To tired humanity,
You are Love’s revelation
Of Truth that makes us free.
Your kingdom, God, within us
Shows forth Love’s sweet control.
God’s idea, man, rejoices;
We know the reign of Soul.
(Florence L. Heywood)
Breaking through the clouds of darkness,
Black with error, doubt, and fear;
Lighting up each somber shadow,
With a radiance soft and clear;
Filling every heart with gladness,
That its holy power feels,
Comes the Christian Science gospel,
Sin it kills and grief it heals.
Christlike in its benedictions,
Godlike in its strength sublime;
Conquering every subtle error,
With a meekness all divine,
It has gone across the ocean,
It is known in every land,
And our sisters and our brothers
Are united in one band.
