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.
(Christian Science Hymnal, No. 475)
In Love divine all earth-born fear and sorrow
Fade as the dark when dawn pours forth her light;
And understanding prayer is fully answered,
When trustingly we turn to God aright.
And as on wings of faith we soar and worship,
Held by God's love above the shadows dim,
Hushed in the grandeur of a heart's awakening,
Unfolds a joy unknown till found in Him.
Then in this radiant light of adoration,
We know that man beloved is in God's care,
Not wrapped in fear nor bowed with tired labor,
But satisfied, complete, divinely fair.
(Christian Science Hymnal, No. 510)
From these Your children gathered in Your name,
From hearts made whole, from lips redeemed from woe,
Your praise, Almighty, shall forever flow.
O perfect Life, in Your completeness held,
None can beyond Your omnipresence stray;
Safe in Your Love, we live and sing alway
O perfect Mind, reveal Your likeness true,
That higher selfhood which we all must prove,
Joy and dominion, love reflecting Love.
O Soul, inspiring-give us vision clear,
Break earth-bound fetters, sweep away the veil,
Show the new heaven and earth that shall prevail.
(Christian Science Hymnal, No. 478)
