From the November 1942 issue of The Christian Science Journal

Beloved Leader! Could my heart forget A love so deep and warm, unselfed and pure, The whole wide world grows richer in your debt For God revealed as tender, near, and sure? What harried, hurried sense could half prevail Against this earnest, real, and swift desire? My duty to my Leader shall not fail Through doubt or gloom, through grief or testing fire. For gratitude is such a living thing It springs to joyous action in the Cause You founded—Christian Science, pledged to bring Mankind's release from cruel creeds and laws.
