Voluntaries, by Robert Powell
Mildred Spring Case, Alt.
Forget not who you are, O child of God,
For God demands of you reflection pure;
Your heritage is goodly, and your home,
In Spirit's warm embrace, is safe, secure.
You are the child of Spirit, sinless, pure-
Yours is a perfect beauty, born of Soul-
Complete with health, vitality, and grace.
For is not God, your Father, perfect, whole?
Your understanding, too, comes straight from God.
For in that Mind, magnificent and clear,
You are conceived by Love, a perfect child,
Unhampered by the flesh, or doubt, or fear.
So now look up to God's pure holy light
And greet with fearless joy each coming day.
Of royal birth, you are a King's own child-
And God is yours, and you are God's alway.
Poem Notes: Psalms 16:6. The words of this hymn are from a poem entitled “Thy Birthright,” first printed in the September 1926 issue of The Christian Science Journal.

Mary I. Mesechre
Arise, arise and shine,
On thee hath dawned the day;
God is thy sun, and Christ thy light,
Be thou a steadfast ray.
Sing praise, O waking heart,
For all thy God hath wrought;
For Truth's clear light on thee hath shone,
And purified thy thought.
No more shall sin and wrong
Obscure the light divine,
For God hath given thee His Son,
And lo, all things are thine.
Arise, arise and shine,
Uplift thee from the sod,
And let thy living light show forth
Man's unity with God.
Mary Alice Dayton
Eternal Mind the Potter is,
And thought th' eternal clay:
The hand that fashions is divine,
His works pass not away.
Man is the noblest work of God,
His beauty, power and grace,
Immortal; perfect as his Mind
Reflected face to face.
God could not make imperfect man
His model infinite;
Unhallowed thought He could not plan,
Love's work and Love must fit.
Life, Truth and Love the pattern make,
Christ is the perfect heir;
The clouds of sense roll back, and show
The form divinely fair.
God's will is done; His kingdom come;
The Potter's work is plain.
The longing to be good and true
Has brought the light again.
And man does stand as God's own child,
The image of His love.
Let gladness ring from every tongue,
And heaven and earth approve.
Grand Jeu, by Pierre DuMage
