From The Christian Science Hymnal, 1932 edition
O sweet and tender as the dawn,
With mighty power to heal and bless,
Is God’s dear gift to all His own:
The happy grace of gentleness.
How quickly burdens fall away,
How hearts grow light, rejoice, are glad,
When Love with touch of gentleness
Uplifts the sinning and the sad.
This gentle grace of Love divine
Is sweet as breath of opening flower.
Self-love and harshness disappear
Beneath its tender, healing power.
