"TALITHA CUMI"

From the November 1911 issue of The Christian Science Journal


" Talitha cumi!" If of thee 'tis said, As of that daughter of Jairus' heart, Thou art beyond the help of human aid, God's healing truth can bid the dream depart. "Talitha cumi!" Though they laugh to scorn The spoken declaration made for thee, Still, like the eastern maid to life reborn, At this decree thine opened eyes shall see.
