THE NOW

From the February 1923 issue of The Christian Science Journal


Why linger in the shadows of the past, Or towards the future longing glances cast? Behold to-day, with all its blessings vast! From somber dreams of what hath been, awake! Imagings vain of what may be, forsake! In God's eternal now thy dwelling make. Truth, Life, and Love are now revealed to thee; Lift up thine eyes their radiance to see; Accept their gifts, bestowed abundantly! By quiet waters, Truth thy steps doth lead; Life giveth bread thy hungry heart to feed; Love infinite supplies thy every need.
