The Treatment

From the March 1952 issue of The Christian Science Journal


Out of the night of doubt and pain and terror The healing words, in answer to my call, Came in swift, gentle, urgent reassurance Of Love supreme, alone, encircling all: Be not afraid, beloved child of Zion, It is unreal—the lie, the dream, the fear— For only Life and Truth and good are present In God's eternal, perfect now and here. Arise! Take up this bed and claim full freedom; Behold the Light that never can grow dim And know that now, even as in the beginning, You walk in holy sinlessness in Him.
