"O REST IN THE LORD"

Many people have been refreshed and encouraged while listening to the beautiful solo "O rest in the Lord" from the oratorio "Elijah" by Mendelssohn. The words for this particular aria are based on part of the thirty-seventh Psalm. Sometimes, however, this listening may bring only a temporary respite from the cares and weariness of human experience. In order that we may gain a higher sense of ever-available rest, it is well to consider just what it means to "rest in the Lord."

In the first place, if we are truly to "rest in the Lord," we should learn what God is. In the textbook, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures," in answer to the question, "What is God?" Mary Baker Eddy says (p. 465), "God is incorporeal, divine, supreme, infinite Mind, Spirit, Soul, Principle, Life, Truth, Love."
