Morning prayer hymns Rolf A. F. Witzsche

O Jesus, our dear Exemplar

Based on hymns

God is Mind: the generous creative, enabling impetus;
 the ennobling, enriching, beautifying, empowering, protecting,
 producing, healing, freeing, enlightening, expanding, and harmonizing presence.


O Jesus, our dear Exemplar,
Thy works, now understood,
Reveal their full effulgence
In Love's sweet brotherhood.
Today Christ's precious Science
Thy healing power makes plain:
With joy may all obey thee
And cast out sin and pain.

The Christ, eternal manhood,
As God's own Son beloved,
A tender ever-presence
Within each heart is proved.
O God, our Father-Mother,
Thy name we see expressed
By man, who in Thy Science
Is perfect, holy, blessed.

O Science, God-sent message
To tired humanity,
Thou art Love's revelation
Of Truth that makes man free.
Thy kingdom, God, within us
Shows forth Love's sweet control:
Thus God's idea, man, rejoices,
Celebrating the reign of Soul.
