[Translated from the German]

Like the psalmist I would say: "Bless the Lord, O my soul:...

Like the psalmist I would say: "Bless the Lord, O my soul: and all that is within me, bless his holy name. Bless the Lord, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits: who forgiveth all thine iniquities; who healeth all thy diseases; who redeemeth thy life from destruction; who crowneth thee with lovingkindness and tender mercies." I would link my testimony of gratitude and of healing to these words, for great things have been done unto me by God's infinite love and goodness through Christian Science. I was healed of a severe stomach and gall-stone trouble, which for several years had caused me increasing suffering, together with all its injurious effects. I used to look into the future with a heavy heart. All material methods and means were applied, from the crudest to the most refined; but although they relieved me for a while, they were not conducive to a cure.

In the hour of greatest need, help came through Christian Science. I had heard of this teaching before, through a kind couple, and when the subject presented itself again, I set my trust upon it and was richly rewarded. A dear neighbor went to a Christian Science practitioner, who came at once, and after talking with me gave me treatment. After the fourth treatment I was completely healed. This was almost two years ago, and there has been no return of the trouble. Today I am perfectly well in mind and body. The search after the universal truth as presented in Christian Science, after the universal solvent of divine Love which healeth mankind and bringeth calm and peace, was a big struggle, extending over thirty years, during which time I met with many a hard experience. But this is all a thing of the past and everything has become new. I thank God from the depths of my heart for the benefits received, and am grateful to Mrs. Eddy. May all people attain to the true knowledge and understanding of God!
