Our safe dwelling

“The secret place of the most High” 1
Is an exalted place
Where Spirit is supreme,
Truth is triumphant, 
and victory assured. 

Here we are enveloped by divine Principle, Love, 
Protected by the goodness of Soul,
Sustained by the substance of Mind,
Secure in the power of eternal Life. 

In this holy place, God is All-in-all,
Christ reveals reality,
Harmony prevails, and
We are as perfect as our Father in heaven. 

Here, evil “is neither person, place, nor thing,”2
Adam and Eve have no residence, 
Sin and disease are nonexistent.
Death has no sting.

But all who dwell in the shade of the Almighty,
Find that grace abounds,
Health persists,
Peace is unyielding,
Spiritual ideas forever unfold,
And the kingdom of heaven is at hand.
