Hymn 129

From The Christian Science Hymnal, 1932 edition


How sweetly flowed the gospel sound
From lips of gentleness and grace,
When listening thousands gathered round
And joy and reverence filled the place.

From heaven he came, of heaven he spoke,
To heaven he led his followers’ way.
Dark clouds of gloomy night he broke,
Unveiling Love’s immortal day.

To wanderers from the Father’s home,
To weary ones he offered rest;
So to his teachings all may come,
Obey them, love them, and be blest.
