SYMPATHY

From the September 1923 issue of The Christian Science Journal


Pray listen, friend and neighbor, may I ask Just where God's sunshine enters thy domain? Thy welcome smile, in which I love to bask, Brings twofold healing to my bed of pain. Is 't through thy trusting heart that thou receiv'st The cheer that only heaven can bestow? Or is it through thy healing words thou leav'st A sense of quiet rest where'er you go? Perhaps thine eyes, so filled with hope, may be The windows to thine inner realm, and through Them shines the light that helps thee well to see Thy brother's daily need with clearer view.
