[Written for the Journal]


From the April 1911 issue of The Christian Science Journal

'Tis ours to watch and pray, for she has taught The accepted prayer of purified desire: The cup of healing that her hand has brought Is ours forever: while her words of fire Still urge us onward to the beckoning heavens, and higher. She showed the way that Jesus showed of yore, That sin and hate and man's deceitfulness Had quite o'ercast, and shrouded more and more: We first rejected her, then learned to bless, And now our joy for her o'erwhelms our hearts' distress.
