O'er waiting harpstrings of the mind
There sweeps a strain,
Low, sad, and sweet, whose measures bind
The power of pain,
And wake a white-winged angel throng
Of thoughts, illumed
By faith, and breathed in raptured song,
With love perfumed.
Then His unveiled, sweet mercies show
Life's burdens light.
I kiss the cross, and wake to know
A world more bright.
And o'er earth's troubled, angry sea
I see Christ walk,
And come to me, and tenderly,
Thus Truth engrounds me on the rock,
Upon Life's shore,
'Gainst which the winds and waves can shock,
From tired joy and grief afar,
And nearer Thee, -
Father, where Thine own children are,
I love to be.
My prayer, some daily good to do
To Thine, for Thee;
An offering pure of Love, whereto
God leadeth me.
(Christian Science Hymnal, No. 551)
We thank Thee, heavenly Father,
For Thy correcting rod,
Which guides us in our journey
And leads us home to God.
It tells us not of anger,
The weapon mortals sway,
But Love divine, that helps us
To keep the better way.
O may we tread the pathway,
Nor ever turn aside,
Allured by ways of error,
Whose paths are broad and wide.
Toward Thee, while pressing onward,
The way will brighter grow,
For Thou throughout the journey
Thy loving care wilt show.
(Christian Science Hymnal, No. 376)
Come, gracious Spirit, heavenly Love,
With light and comfort from above;
Be Truth our guardian, Love our guide,
O'er every thought and step preside,
Be God our guide.
The light of Truth to us display,
That we may know and choose Your way;
Plant holy joy in every heart,
That we from You may ne'er depart,
Plant joy in every heart.
Lead us, O Christ, the living Way,
Nor let us from your precepts stray;
Lead us to God, our heavenly rest,
That we may be forever blest,
(Christian Science Hymnal, No. 459)
