"I look to thee"

It was Christmas day, but never before had the significance of the day appeared so clear to me. About three o'clock that anticipated morning I awoke with a sense of acute pain. My first impulse was to try to relieve it by rubbing, but immediately the right thought came and I did not move. I lay still, trying to realize that there is no sensation in matter, and that "all is infinite Mind and its infinite manifestation, for God is All-in-all," as we read in the "scientific statement of being" (Science and Health, p. 468). Then there came to me, as they had done many times before, the words on page 208 of our Hymnal:—

I look to Thee in every need,And never look in vain;I feel Thy touch, eternal Love,And all is well again:The thought of Thee is mightier farThan sin and pain and sorrow are,
