Reach out to God
Right where you are
And as you are
He is right there
With you
Loving you completely,
Seeing you as His perfect,
Precious child.

Reach within
For the higher, truer thoughts
Of your identity,
They lift you above
The clamor of matter’s lies
And help you realize
Your spiritual being.

Reaching for the Truth,
The Christ-power, Leads you to the “Horeb height,”*
The consciousness of
Spirit’s supremacy,
Of God as the only Life
And you as the man
Of God’s creating.

* Mary Baker Eddy, “Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures,” p. 241
