From the June 1934 issue of The Christian Science Journal

When shadows fall and sinks the setting sun, Quiet, I sometimes ponder all I've done Throughout the day. Have I put self behind, to turn to God? Have I been led by His protecting rod, To watch and pray? Have I sought God when problems were in sight? Have I asked Him to lead me to the light, His guiding ray? Have I declared the truth, glimpsed perfect man, Seen nothing else but what would be His plan For me this day? When others' faults have been revealed to me, Have I helped them their perfect selves to see, And to Him turned? Have I been glad, encouraging, and kind, And leaving faults and failings all behind, Just good discerned? Have I expressed more gratitude and love For what I have, and thanked dear God above For His supply? If these I've done, then I may take my rest, Assured of peace, full knowing I've been blessed By God on high.
