Divine Contentment Heals

From the February 1953 issue of The Christian Science Journal

This is God's day; I do not wish it
To be any other day or time.
This is God's place; I do not want it
To be any other place. I am
About my Father's business now and always;
I do not long for any other employ.
This is God's presence; His company is sufficient
Fully to satisfy.

Here is God's holiness; no further wholeness
Can man require.
Under His laws we live; no wiser government
Can man desire.
Man is complete and perfect in God's own likeness;
Man does not yearn for a different nature or name.
Such are the facts that spiritually acknowledged
Compel all human evidence to conform.

Such are the facts that morning by morning welcomed,
Uphold, direct, inspire
Our every footstep and will safely bring us
Through wilderness or fire.
Such are the Christly facts that daily held to
Evangelize, redeem
All human thinking, till signs of healing follow.
In such divine contentment is heaven and home.
