The voice of Truth

From the January 2016 issue of The Christian Science Journal

This poem first appeared in the April 1950 issue of the Journal. It is also in a collection of poetry, Boundless Light, recently published by The Christian Science Publishing Society. The collection includes a sampling of poems that have appeared in the Christian Science periodicals over a number of decades.


Not in the earthquake or the flame,
The wracking wind, or violence, came
   The voice of Truth—omnipotence.
But in the stillness and the calm,
Omniscient quietude—the balm
   Of Love’s supernal evidence.

Not in the quake, the crash, the heat
Where warring mental forces meet
   Is heard the voice of Truth today.
But in the quiet ministry
Of those who, calm in victory,
   Have learned through Science how to pray.

—Margaret Morrison
