WHAT GREATER GIFT?

From the April 1932 issue of The Christian Science Journal


To sit amid the fragrance there Of shavings from the sundered wood And listen to his simple words, His loving counselings of good; To walk with him a rugged way In sunny noon or singing shower, And drink deep drafts of living Truth— To talk with him a golden hour; To hearken to his parable Of countryside, of olive tree; To rest with him beside the road In his divine tranquillity; To pass with him such yesterdays Were sacred privilege unpriced; But ah, what greater gift to-day To deeply know the risen Christ!
