Hymn:

His eyes, not mine, but him who sees me

shine through me to see pure light

His hands not mine but him who holds me

lets me hold the Truth upright

His voice not mine to speak words Godly

allows the Truth to ever flow

His feet not mine, to stand upwardly

blessing all where I must go

(Joseph McTaggart)

 

Psalm 135 (136)
A paschal hymn
Give thanks to the Lord, for his great love is without end.
Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good,
  for his love is for ever.
Give thanks to the God of gods,
  for his love is for ever.
Give thanks to the Lord of lords,
  for his love is for ever.
He alone works wonders,
  for his love is for ever.
In his wisdom he made the heavens,
  for his love is for ever.
He set the Earth upon the waters,
  for his love is for ever.
He created the great lights,
  for his love is for ever.
The sun, to rule over the day,
  for his love is for ever.
The moon and stars, to rule over the night,
  for his love is for ever.
Glory be to the Father and to the Son
  and to the Holy Spirit,
as it was in the beginning,
  is now, and ever shall be,
  world without end.
Amen.
“Like our nation, Christian Science has its Declaration
of Independence. God has endowed man with inalien-
able rights, among which are self-government,
reason, and conscience. Man is properly self-
governed only when he is guided rightly and governed by
his Maker, divine Truth and Love.
Man’s rights are invaded when the divine order is in-
terfered with, and the mental trespasser incurs the divine
penalty due this crime”.

Glory Be To The Father: Spiritual Interpretation

“Father is man’s divine Principle, Love. Son is God’s man —His image or spiritual likeness. Holy Ghost is Divine Science, the Messiah or Comforter. Jesus in the flesh was the prophet or wayshower to Life, Truth, and Love, and out of the flesh Jesus was the Christ, the spiritual idea, or image and likeness of God”.

From a Letter to Judge Hanna from Mrs Eddy
