From the September 1940 issue of The Christian Science Journal

The humble one, whose earnest prayer Is whispered every day, Whose mind is steadfast in the truth, Whose lips no ill can say; Whose hands are ever faithful To the common daily task, Who finds the service worth his while, Nor thanks nor praise doth ask; Whose ears are tuned to charity, To hear its softest plea; Whose eyes in every phase of life Some goodness always see; Whose feet can follow steadily A path grown rough and steep And learn to walk more surely still, Though life's black night be deep— That one will earn life's richest gifts, And conquer time and space; That one will learn eternal life. And see God face to face.
