"Praise ye the Lord"

That beautiful compilation of prayer and praise known as the Psalms continually reminds us to exalt, extol, and glorify God. Each of the psalms from the one hundred and forty-sixth through the one hundred and fiftieth commences with the injunction, "Praise ye the Lord;" and, indeed, "it is good to sing praises unto our God."

One who lacks the spiritual understanding which is gained by the study of Christian Science may find it difficult to thank God as the Psalmist would have us do, perhaps wondering what there is for which to be grateful, when it seems that there is so much suffering and sorrow in the world. But, turning to this blessed truth, one soon learns that our God is infinite, divine, all-embracing Love, the creator of a universe that is altogether perfect and harmonious. where discord, sorrow, suffering, and sin have no place or power. As one keeps one's thought filled with this ineffable Love, evil becomes more and more unreal, the heart feels the "peace of God, which passeth all understanding," good becomes more and more apparent, and gratitude becomes natural and spontaneous. Having attained this spiritual growth, it is natural for the student of Christian Science to desire to express his gratitude to God "for his wonderful works to the children of men;" and he finds many opportunities given him in the Christian Science movement.
