Transfiguration

From the April 1997 issue of The Christian Science Journal


On the mount of revelation
God gently speaks
to receptive thought,
to the responsive heart
opening wide with love
as the petals of a flower
at morning to receive the light—
the Word of God—revelation
that maketh error naught.

Today this heavenly light
shines in uplifted thought
as brightly as it did in days of yore
when Aaron, waiting
with the children of Israel
at Mount Sinai,
saw it shining as the sun
in Moses’ transfigured face.
 See Ex. 34:29-35 .

Great is this ageless Christ light
and beautiful the transfiguration
of uplifted thought
divorced from human belief,
theory, creed, and fear.
Great is the light
and gentle its touch
and healing.

Powerful was the light of Christ
when it shone as the sun
on the mount of transfiguration
in Jesus' exalted face,
 See Matt. 17:1-5 .
bathing a darkened world
in God's own
healing love and grace.

And great is this light today
shining in receptive thought
as the Christ Science revealed,
the same glorious Word
proclaiming the identity of man
to be God's own beloved child!
