Whence Cometh Peace?

From the March 2, 1940 issue of the Christian Science Sentinel


Wars and the talk of wars! When shall these cease? When in the hearts of men There reigneth peace— Peace born of love that seeks Never its own; Love that can know all men As they are known To the great source of love, Sons true and free, Thus, through Love's fatherhood Brothers to be! Then shall greed fall before Unselfed desire, Then shall hate be consumed In divine fire. Nations shall meet as one Through Spirit's leaven— And the whole earth shall know The peace of heaven.
