O fathering, mothering God...!

From the April 1983 issue of The Christian Science Journal


O fathering God of righteousness, Known through the Christ, Your Son, Unfold in us the consciousness Wherein Your will is done: When that will steers a nation's might Past prejudice and fears And wakens men's hearts to the right— Christ in the world appears. O mothering God, this day we seek One great Love to adore, The Love that sweetens peoples' thought On every land and shore; Your male-female is genderless— Whose sinless grace endures, Whose strength flows through our tenderness, Whose motives all are Yours.
