The man from Nain

From the July 1980 issue of The Christian Science Journal


What
if that
had been me—
raised from death
at an early age
by the master Christian?

How would the rest
of my life have unfolded?
Could I possibly have returned
to old ways, unchanged?

Indeed, I have been raised!
The Christ has touched me
when dead in sin,
when lulled to sleep
by personal sense.

The call
was irresistible:
Awake to the strength
of Love's pure power.

And having once responded,
I found
there was no
turning back.
