O Present Grace

From the June 1961 issue of The Christian Science Journal


Grace is not something far from where we are: a glimmering shore, across dark wastes of sea, or star fixed high from us in space, while we below, doomed to this dust, can do no more than strain with our eyes to stare at it—the sign perceived, the substance unpossessed. Grace is no thing apart like this.
