From the land of shadows and darkened dreams,...

From the August 1899 issue of The Christian Science Journal


From the land of shadows and darkened dreams, Where all that real is, unreal seems; Where human strength but weakness proves; Where human love but little moves; Where selfish ends are ever sought, And mighty Truth appears as nought; A white star leadeth me, To that Haven where hath eternal lease Sweet Purity and gentle Peace; Where in God's might man finds his strength; Where in God's love man finds at length His rest, his peace, himself ensoul'd; His heart enriched by grace untold, A white star guideth me.
