Mary Baker Eddy’s poem, Satisfied, sung at church today

Mary Baker Eddy wrote the poem Satisfied and it is a regular hymn that is sung during our services. Jen Hijj sang this hymn as a solo with a contemporary arrangement at today’s May 17th church service. She does a great job and we were blessed to have her.

The words to the poem are:

It matters not what be thy lot,
So Love doth guide;
For storm or shine, pure peace is thine,
Whate’er betide.

And of these stones, or tyrants’ thrones,
God able is
To raise up seed — in thought and deed —
To faithful His.

Aye, darkling sense, arise, go hence!
Our God is good.
False fears are foes — truth tatters those,
When understood.

Love looseth thee, and lifteth me,
Ayont hate’s thrall:
There Life is light, and wisdom might,
And God is All.

The centuries break, the earth-bound wake,
God’s glorified!
Who doth His will — His likeness still —
Is satisfied.
