From the July 1931 issue of The Christian Science Journal

He taught the world that sickness was a wraith Which fled before the light of Love divine, That purest understanding, grown from faith, Could prove that Truth of which men sought a sign, Subdue the tempest, quiet stormy seas And cast out devils from the hearts of men, Declare unreal the phantom of disease, And bid the blind at last behold again. Upon the Mount he taught his own to pray The prayer of faith that heals and purifies, Forgiving even one who dared betray; He pierced the veil of error's dark disguise And, lifted past the bounds of human sight, Left to all men the miracle of light.
