Three L's for Life

From the January 14, 2013 issue of the Christian Science Sentinel

Lean on the sustaining infinite
And blessings will be yours.
Lean not on person, place, or thing
Or economic laws;
But lean upon all-blessing God
Who will all needs supply
And give to all abundant good
That money cannot buy.

Let the reign of Truth and Life,
The reign of Love divine,
Be now established within me
To show God’s clear design
Of Oneness, indivisible,
Of He and me as one,
As water is to ocean,
As sunbeam is to sun.

Love with a heart of tenderness
Your enemies and friends;
However hard this may appear
It’s the quality that mends.
For Love is God in action,
A presence that is felt;
A healing and a saving power
That will all discord melt.

So lean, and let, and love
This is the balanced Way;
It’s free from self-will, pressure, stress,
It welcomes in God’s day;
The leaning is so gentle,
The letting is so free,
And loving is the only way
To think, and speak, and be.
