From the January 1941 issue of The Christian Science Journal

As Thy great prophet of an age long past Prayed for his servant in a time of fear, So do we, Father, lift our hearts to Thee In the assurance Thou art ever near, Pray for discernment that we, too, may see Clearly the angels of Thy presence here. So, as Elisha saw the heavenly host Gathered about him to uphold the right, Truth ever watchful with the flaming sword, Love the unvanquished conquering carnal might, So do we also place our trust in Thee To guard and guide us through the troubled night.
