Oh , the angels of His presence! How they cheer us in the gloom! How they raise us out of dullness And reveal to us the fullness Of His love! Make "radiant room" POEMS, by Mary Baker Eddy, page 75 For the angels of His presence! How the angels of His presence Hovered o'er the waiting earth, Bringing peace and joy and gladness, Banishing all fear and sadness, At the blessed Christ-child's birth— Holy angels of His presence! How the angels of His presence Guide us when our footsteps stray; Show us all the joy and beauty Lying in the path of duty; Keep us in the holy way, Blessed angels of His presence! Loving angels of His presence Teach us Christ is ever near; That, while Christmas chimes are pealing, Th' ever present Christ is healing As the truth dawns, full and clear, Through the angels of His presence.
