From the June 1936 issue of The Christian Science Journal

Not by entreaty shall I ask
For happiness to warm and light
My daily journey's every task.

My plea shall speak in kindly deeds,
Forgetting self and human will,
That meet with joy another's needs;

In thought that, as the summer rain
Drops sweet refreshment on the land,
Can bring release from grief and pain;

In consciousness of Love that lives
In every pure and Christly hope,
And increase of high purpose gives;

In psalms, unframed by mortal tongue,
That blessed healing shall bestow
All earthly scenes of men among—

Not in mere words! My journey trod,
A living and unceasing prayer:
A prayer of gratitude to God!
