From the December 1896 issue of The Christian Science Journal

When thou art happy, child, And life is glad and free; Amid thy loved ones, child, All happiness for thee;— Ah! couldst thou only know, And, knowing truly see, Thy God is here below The joy to share with thee. When thou art weary, child, And life and earth are drear; When thou art lonely, child And sorrow seems so near;— Ah! couldst thou only see And, seeing this, believe, Thy God is near to thee The sadness to relieve.
