HYMNS
 

Hymn #475

  Forget not who you are, O child of God,
For God demands of you reflection pure;
Your heritage is goodly, and your home,
In Spirit's warm embrace, is safe, secure.

You are the child of Spirit, sinless, pure-
Yours is a perfect beauty, born of Soul-
Complete with health, vitality, and grace.
For is not God, your Father, perfect, whole?

Your understanding, too, comes straight from God.
For in that Mind, magnificent and clear,
You are conceived by Love, a perfect child,
Unhampered by the flesh, or doubt, or fear.

So now look up to God's pure holy light
And greet with fearless joy each coming day.
Of royal birth, you are a King's own child-
And God is yours, and you are God's alway.
(The Christian Science Hymnal, No.  475)
 

Hymn #374

We thank Thee and we bless Thee,
O Father of us all,
That e'en before we ask Thee
Thou hear'st Thy children's call.
We praise Thee for Thy goodness
And tender, constant care,
We thank Thee, Father-Mother,
That Thou hast heard our prayer.

We thank Thee and we bless Thee,
O Lord of all above,
That now Thy children know Thee
As everlasting Love.
And Love is not the author
Of discord, pain and fear;
O Love divine, we thank Thee
That good alone is here.

We thank Thee, Father-Mother,
For blessings, light and grace
Which bid mankind to waken
And see Thee face to face.
We thank Thee, when in anguish
We turn from sense to Soul,
That we may hear Thee calling:
Rejoice, for thou art whole.
(The Christian Science Hymnal, No.  374)

 

Hymn #582
The grace of God is always surrounding me.
Wherever I should wander, God will ever be.
Truth that makes us free, I will know.
Love's delight in me brightly glows:
The grace of God forever surrounding me.

Forever, Life divine, I am one with You.
The Christ reveals my selfhood that is always true.
One with Soul in true quality,
One existence eternally:
The grace of God forever surrounding me.

The strength of Love compels me to sing aloud.
Intelligent, eternal Mind will lift the cloud.
Life bestows on me perfect health,
Soul reveals to me inner wealth:
The grace of God forever surrounding me.
(The Christian Science Hymnal, No.  582)
