Hymn of Christian Science

From the March 1885 issue of The Christian Science Journal

This article was later republished in Miscellaneous Writings 1883-1896: Mis. 398:21-399:15

Saw ye my Saviour? Heard ye the glad sound?
  Felt ye the power of the Word?
     'Twas the Truth that made us free,
     And was found by you and me
  In the Life and the Love of our Lord.

Mourner, it calls thee—come to this Saviour;
  Love wipes your tears all away,
     And will lift the shades of gloom,
     And for thee make blessed room
  Where the darkness hath yielded to day.

Sinner, it calls thee; all who are thirsty,
  Drink of its life-giving stream:
     'Tis the Spirit that makes pure,
     That exalts thee, and will cure
  Every sorrow and sickness and sin.

Strongest deliverer, friend of the friendless,
  God of all being divine:
     Thou the Christ, and not the creed;
     Thou the Truth, in thought and deed;
  Thou the water, the bread, and the wine.
