Shining a light on the weekly Bible Lessons published in the Christian Science Quarterly®


Open thou mine eyes, that I may behold wondrous things out of thy law.

wondrous: wonderful; marvelous

Arise, shine; for thy light is come, and the glory of the Lord is risen upon thee. For, behold, the darkness shall cover the earth, and gross darkness the people: but the Lord shall arise upon thee, and his glory shall be seen upon thee.
