Following Christ "without a word"

From the August 1990 issue of The Christian Science Journal


In the Christian Science Hymnal there's a hymn adapted from a poem by John Greenleaf Whittier that counsels us to follow the disciples' example in our response to Christ. One stanza reads: In simple trust like theirs who heard, Beside the Syrian sea, The gracious calling of the Lord, Let us, like them, without a word Rise up and follow thee.
