A precious view
A precious, pure, and perfect view
St. John did see formed anew
Light so bright, not the sun
Love’s pure light, the holy One
No temple, stone, or body there
Truth illumines this city foursquare
What a thought to ponder!
Through Scripture’s sacred pages
Christianity’s strength and permanence
Unchanged throughout the ages
The Science of celestial being
Our Savior brought to light
Lifting consciousness into eternal Truth
Reveals true and holy sight
Let us stand upon the mount
To see reality
There, mist cannot obscure
Not material history, spiritual development is true and correct
Its beauty, continuity, and goodness
Behold! One primal cause and effect
Called from darkness into holiness
Science, sunshine of Truth, the light
Ever precious, pure, and perfect
To our heavenly Father’s sight
—G. Gershala Goldsmith
