Christian Science nurse

From the June 2017 issue of The Christian Science Journal

Christian Science nurse

So loving, so kind,
the Christian Science nurse
smiles with tenderness 
and compassion,
inspires and lifts our thought.

The littlest deeds,
the smallest considerations,
the heartfelt constancy
are a glow of brightness 
that surrounds us.

Never doubting,
never fearing,
you are always praying.
As you witness only 
to God’s perfect creation,
no graphic picture of mortal mind
dims your scientific beholding, 
your ministry of Spirit.

At midnight hour,
at break of dawn,
at noon’s repast—
patient, alert, humble—
Love is your guide 
as you walk your rounds.

May the good you do,
the blessings you bring,
make your heart sing!

—Carol Sims
