The Promised Land

From the April 1950 issue of The Christian Science Journal


The prophet Moses heard the voice of God When safe among the fields at Midian, Content in easy domesticity Free from the plague of Pharaoh's jealousy. So was God's Word revealed to Abraham In human years of ripe security, The lance of Spirit severing his desires From narrow sensuous ease to broader purposes.
