From the June 1900 issue of The Christian Science Journal

Flower of virtue, gem of morn, Star of evening far and free, Rarest gift from heaven born, Gracing all humanity; Crown of monarch, childhood's dower, Mortals' loss but manhood's gain, Groundwork of all lasting power, High in Truth though low in name, To every virtue, grace, the key Is the Christ-humility. If there is one virtue more than another which needs cultivation it is humility; and if there is a virtue which the human mind is especially reluctant to accept, it is humility.
