"Tear or triumph"
"So, when day grows dark and cold,
Tear or triumph harms,
Lead Thy lambkins to the fold,
Take them in Thine arms."
In this stanza from her beloved poem, "'Feed My Sheep'" (Poems, p. 14) Mrs. Eddy makes it clear that we need our Father's protection from the harm of triumph as well as from the harm of tears. One young student of Christian Science used to wonder how triumph could be harmful, when it seemed desirable, until she began work as a representative of a certain organization. Those who were satisfied with the organization praised her; those who were dissatisfied criticized her. She would be elated one day and discouraged the next. Then earnest work to overcome the difficulty was started, with the help of Mrs. Eddy's writings, and it was learned that spiritualized thought would recognize no reality in either personal trial or triumph.
