"Bless the Lord, O my soul: and all that is within me,...

"Bless the Lord, O my soul: and all that is within me, bless his holy name.... Who forgiveth all thine iniquities; who healeth all thy diseases." How many times these words of the psalmist have been repeated, but with what an imperfect sense of all they actually mean to us. We all like to hear the expression of gratitude, but the debt which we owe to God, good, for what is ours by divine right, far transcends the ordinary definition of the word gratitude. We need to live it, not express it by words only.

In return for such understanding which has come to me since I first learned of Christian Science I feel it is time that I added my testimony to the long list of those already published, in the hope that it will help some others to seek and to find the truth. In the first place, through that belief of superabundance of knowledge so common among mortals, I thought of Christian Science and those connected with it as hardly worth consideration, but I knew nothing about it. At that time, my eyes were closed utterly to the greatness and goodness of our Leader who, standing alone, has proved to the world what it means to love one's neighbor.
