Hymn 142

From The Christian Science Hymnal, 1932 edition


Immortal Love, forever full,
Forever flowing free,
Forever shared, forever whole,
A never ebbing sea,

Our outward lips confess the name
All other names above;
But love alone knows whence it came,
And comprehendeth Love.

Blow, winds of God, awake and blow
The mists of earth away.
Shine out, O light divine, and show
How wide and far we stray.

The letter fails, the systems fall,
And every symbol wanes:
The Spirit overbrooding all,
Eternal Love, remains.
