The Christ

Originally published in the August 15, 1890 issue of the Christian Science Series (Vol. 2, No. 8)

In atmosphere of Love divine,
We live, and move, and breathe;
And if we feel and know it not,
'Tis sense that would deceive.

The Principle of Being, Christ,
Is with us everywhere;
He holds us perfect in his love,
And we his image bear.

The mortal sense we must destroy,
If we would bring to light
The wonders of eternal Mind,
Where sense is lost in sight.

With Christ, the Principle, the Head,
We in one Body move;
In harmony, and peace, and joy,
In Life, and Truth, and Love.
