The Science of Christianity

He that would to a proper sense attain
In Knowledge, of the very rudiments
Of this Great Science, must his Cross uplift
And bear it meekly in his daily life,
Following in the footsteps of his Lord
And Master Jesus Christ, the Way-Shower.
As Christians verily in deeds, and not
In words alone, this Comprehensive Truth,
That God is the Great Principle in which
Man lives and moves and has his being—we
Must realize.

The very air we breathe
Is redolent of God's Own Presence, which
To those who love Him is the breath of Life.
The Sun's bright rays which shine upon the path
We daily tread in passing through this world
Of Mortal strife, in which our aim should be
The working out our own Salvation from
The claims of Sin and Death—these same bright rays
Are mere reflections of that glorious Light
Which radiates from One All-seeing Mind,
All-wise, All-loving, and Eternal God,
The Life, Truth, Spirit, and Intelligence,
The Great I AM, which rules the Universe.
