From The Christian Science Hymnal, 1932 edition
The loving friend to all who bowed
Beneath life’s weary load,
From lips baptized in humble prayer,
His consolations flowed.
The faithful witness to the truth,
His just rebuke was hurled
Out from a heart that burned to break
The fetters of the world.
No hollow rite, no lifeless creed,
His piercing glance could bear;
But longing hearts which sought him found
That God and heaven were there.
