From the October 14, 1939 issue of the Christian Science Sentinel

If God forgave the uncompleted task,
the shelved assignment or the work undone,
then might we think that God could sometimes ask
too much of man. But God requires the utmost farthing paid,
His will completely done;
therefore our hearts may answer unafraid:
Because we must, we can.
The Love that makes demand upon our day
does equal strength supply,
and as our thoughts consistently obey,
there is no task, but joy.
