Keep Melody in Your Heart

The writer lives across the road from a bird sanctuary. At certain times of the year with the appearing of the first rays of dawn one bird will pour forth his own rapturous melody. Then another and another will start singing until the air is filled with a symphony of song. She has often thought what a glorious response this is to the presence of infinite Soul. And what a lesson for the human heart when the shadows of life seem dark or bleak and "when joys of daylight seem so like a dream"! Christian Science Hymnal, No. 359;

According to the teachings of Christian Science, man expresses the radiancy of joy as naturally as the bird bursts forth in song. God, or Soul, is the source of his being. Therefore man includes all the qualities of Soul: completeness, wholeness, purity, perfection, beauty, love—all that makes for joyous, satisfied living. Man is not a saddened mortal. He never can lose his joy.
