The eternal now

[Original in French]

From the October 1988 issue of The Christian Science Journal


Neither suffering, pain, nor tears Exist in eternity But the clear consciousness Of a heart all humility. This heart cannot suffer from year succeeding year, From trials of time or other souvenir Of obsessive past or future never here Or even a regret of weakness far or near, But in hope rejoicing This heart finds its all In infinite ever-present Thou, Eternal now.
