ON THE HEIGHTS

From the November 1899 issue of The Christian Science Journal


How beautiful upon The mountains are the feet Of them that tidings bring Of Love,—God's own heartbeat! Upon the mountain tops The soul steps from the sod Of earthly thoughts upon A nearer path to God; And finds His perfectness, As from each summit gained There stretch forth heights beyond,— Ideals to be attained. What though they be obscured By mists of earth's desire ! Above the clouds their peaks Eternally aspire.
