[Written for the Sentinel]

Divine Science

Science! the angel with the flaming sword!
God's gift, the glory of the risen Lord!
Light of the world, in whose light we shall see,
Father and perfect Son, blest unity!

Shekinah's calm wherein hope's anchor's cast,
Harbor of refuge till the storm be past;
The secret place where God and men do meet,
The Horeb where we walk with unshod feet!

Place of communion with the Lamb of God,
Fold where the sheep must pass beneath His rod;
Ark where the dove may close her faltering wings,
Love's law divine that makes us priests and kings!

Loosener of prison bands at midnight hour,
Of self-forged chains which fall through Love's all-power;
Christ's plenteous, joyous meal by Galilee—
Thou art the sum of fulfilled prophecy.
