A BETTER WAY

From the October 1912 issue of The Christian Science Journal


A woman was given a candle, And she hid it away on the shelf. It is all I have, she murmured, And hardly enough for myself, So I must not let any one see it, But all through the coming night I'll know it is ready and waiting, In case I should need the light.
