Song of a Christian Science nurse

From the June 2022 issue of The Christian Science Journal

Nursing is a dance.
We follow, never lead.
The movement of the Christ
moves us to the need.

We listen and observe.
We follow and obey. 
Tending to the patient’s needs, 
we serve our God each day.

We support, and we receive
more than we ever give.
The balance on the side of good,
Life, abundantly is lived.

The rhythm’s not our own.
The music’s truly seen.
And only in the way of Love
both nurse and patient lean.
