Israel’s hymn

From the June 2021 issue of The Christian Science Journal


How could I Your image bear In this hollow human frame, All alone in dark despair, And with Jacob for a name? Truth, my Life forevermore, In the twinkling of an eye, Change the man who, once before, Stole a blessing with a lie. Him I could not overthrow Wounded me at break of day, But I would not let him go, And he could not get away.
