From the April 1932 issue of The Christian Science Journal

Give me, O God, the knowledge that can see Whatever stands between myself and Thee, Be it self-will, self-love, or pride of thought, That keeps me from the perfect self I've sought— A clear transparency to daily be, That Thou may'st shed Thy healing love through me. With deep humility I'll cast aside Each earth-born thought and in Thy truth abide, That longer still no mist may cloud my gaze, No pent-up sinful thought its voice may raise; As self-esteem goes down, thought will arise To man's true being and to Soul-filled skies.
