The Pilgrim

From the November 2014 issue of The Christian Science Journal

This poem is from a new collection of poetry, Boundless Light, recently published by The Christian Science Publishing Society. It includes a sampling of poems that have appeared in the Christian Science periodicals over a number of decades. “The Pilgrim” first appeared in The Christian Science Journal of November 1939.


He who tempers the wind To the shorn sheep Will guard you, And guide you, And lead your brave feet Over the rough ways of the world, Over crag, over stone; Up through the clouds, Through the mist, And the winds and the cold; On to the glorified height To the foot of His throne. And thus you may know That He sees you, And needs you, And loves you, And calls you His own.
