Hymns of 
Soul, Truth, and Love

adapted from the Christian Science Hymnal

(Hymn 148)

In heavenly Love abiding,
No change our heart shall fear;
For safe is such confiding,
As nothing changes here.
The storm may roar without us,
Our heart may low be laid;
But God is round about us,
How could we be dismayed?

Wherever He may guide us,
No want shall turn us back;
Our Shepherd is beside us,
So, nothing can we lack.
His wisdom ever waketh,
His sight is never dim;
He knows the way He taketh,
And we will walk with Him.

Green pastures are before us,
Which yet we have not seen;
Bright skies will soon be o'er us,
Where darkest clouds have been.
Our hope we cannot measure,
Our path in life is free;
Our Father has our treasure,
And He does walk with all and me.

---------------------

(Hymn 269, 270)

Our God is Love, unchanging Love,
How could we ask for more?
Our prayer for Love's increase is vain;
It's infinite now as before.
Ask not the Lord with breath of praise
For more than we accept;
The open fount is free to all,
God's promises are kept.

Our God is Mind, the perfect Mind,
Intelligence divine;
Shall mortal man ask Him to change
His infinite design?
The heart that yearns for righteousness,
With longing unalloyed,
Is pure desire that is prayer
That ne'er returneth void.

O loving Father, well we know
That words alone are vain,
That those who seek Thy will to do,
The true communion gain.
Then may our deeds, our love's desire
For growth in grace express,
That we may know how Love divine
Forever waits to bless.

-----------------

(Hymn 221)

O Jesus, our dear Master,
Thy works, now understood,
Reveal their full effulgence
Through love and brotherhood.
Today Christ's precious Science
Thy healing power makes plain:
With joy may all obey thee
And cast out sin and pain.

The Christ, eternal manhood,
As God's own Son beloved,
A tender ever-presence
Within each heart is proved.
O God, our Father-Mother,
Thy name we see expressed
By man, who in Thy Science
Is perfect, holy, blessed.

O Science, God-sent message
To tired humanity,
Thou art Love's revelation
Of Truth that makes us free.
Thy kingdom, God, within us
Shows forth Love's sweet control.
God's idea, man, rejoices;
He knows the reign of Soul.
