Mary Baker Eddy

(Born July 16, 1821)

Unnumbered thousands, under God's bright skiesThat glisten nightly, since the shepherds sawThe heavens illumed, and kneeling heard with aweThe angel's song,—unnumbered thousands riseOn earth to-day with happy fearless mien,In stately churches crowned with marble domes,In little scattered hamlets, simple homes,As witnesses to light from heaven seen.The truth that Jesus taughtAgain to earth is brought;Sing praises unto God.

A hundred years in time have passed and goneSince in a room almost unknown to fameA feeble babe with God's own message cameTo wake sad earth with heaven's radiant dawn;With thoughts and dreams from brighter realms on high,Listening to angel voices when at playIn upland pastures wild, she learned to prayAnd felt the motherhood of God near by.This light from heaven to-dayShines on our earthly way;Sing praises unto God.
