Answered prayer

From the February 2018 issue of The Christian Science Journal


I thank Thee, Lord, that Thou art all-enfolding, 
Almighty cause of universe and man;
With boundless love forever safely holding
All being whole and perfect in Thy plan.

To Thee, O God, with humble thought ascending,
I turn in trust, when ills and woes assail.
My longing heart, with fear and doubt contending, 
Yieldeth to Thee, as Truth and Love prevail.

Infinite One, I know that Thou dost hear me. 
Thou art my stay, however dark the night.
Yearning for Thee, dear God, I feel Thy presence, 
And wake to see again Thy glorious light.

I thank Thee, Lord, that Thou art ever with me, 
Eternal Love, that guides me on my way.
O tender Father-Mother, I adore Thee.
Thou who art All, hast turned my night to day.
