Healing waters

From the December 2015 issue of The Christian Science Journal


in the midst of your Sahara
parched with fear, or weary
with looking for some oasis—
some relief from your distress
a lake before your feet
awaits your own discovery
shimmering with grace

deep within, healing waters
flow from the fount of Soul
kneeling, you feel a trickle first
then in your yielding, a stream
cleansing you, refreshing you,
buoying you above the mortal view
a river quenching all your thirst

so you find yourself and others
totally engulfed, immersed in Love

I have felt it gush upon my brother
and I was healed by God’s Niagara love.

—Nancy Humphrey Case
