Immortal Love!— thou Christ that was...

From the August 1884 issue of The Christian Science Journal

Immortal Love!— thou Christ that was,
Thou Christ that is to be!
Thou spirit shining down through time,
From the shores of Galilee.

We place our hearts on things of Earth.
Which melt like summer dew;
But Thou art fast when all is false,—
Thou who art ever true.

When fairy castles fancy builds
Are crashing at our feet,—
And human friendship failing then
Makes ruin more complete,—

Tis Thou alone, immortal Love,
Can resurrect from sleep
Our hopes of heaven, and faith in man,
The loss of which we weep.

"The objects we pursue and the spirit we manifest reveal our standpoint, and what we are losing or winning."—Science and Health, p. 87.
