The sounds of Soul

From the May 1989 issue of The Christian Science Journal

To hear the sounds of Soul
Be silent as a star;
As still as a stone;
As mute as a mountain.

With no noise the dawn breaks;
With no sound the bud becomes a blossom;
With no murmur
A ray of light shines in everlasting splendor.

So it is God speaks His wisdom
In words no human ear can hear.
Yet, Mind in its tranquillity
Paints a picture,
Translates a message,
Illumines an idea, unveils the vision.

Then the sounds of Soul are heard
As trumpets from a hill,
As shouts of glory from every windowsill.

Listen. Listen.
Be still and listen.
