"Soul never saw the Saviour come and go, because the divine idea is always present."—Unity of Good by Mary Baker Eddy, page 59.

"Soul never saw the Saviour come and go."
While Jesus walked the Galilean ways
And healed and taught, men always heard him praise
His Father for the works. Well did he know
The man God made had never fallen low
From Mind's infinitude. Jesus could raise
The child of Jairus, for he kept his gaze
On man's real selfhood—Life's eternal glow.

Weep not, mankind. No strife, no want, no pain,
No birth, no death, nor any earthly stain,
Has ever touched true being, one with Him
Whose name is Spirit. When the light seems dim,
Lift thought; with joyful, calm assurance know
"Soul never saw the Saviour come and go."
