ADDRESS, - LAYING THE CORNER-STONE
a wounded sense of its own error, let not mortal thought
resuscitate too soon.
In our rock-bound friendship, delicate as dear, our
names may melt into one, and common dust, and their
modest sign be nothingness. Be this as it may, the visible
unity of spirit remains, to quicken even dust into sweet
memorial such as Isaiah prophesied: "The wolf also shall
dwell with the lamb, and the leopard shall lie down with
the kid; and the calf and the young lion and the fatling
together; and a little child shall lead them."
When the hearts of Christian Scientists are woven together
as are their names in the web of history, earth will
float majestically heaven's heraldry, and echo the song
of angels: "Glory to God in the highest, and on earth
peace, good will toward men."
To The Church of Christ, Scientist, in Boston, and to
the dear children that my heart folds within it, let me
say, 'Tis sweet to remember thee, and God's Zion, with
healing on her wings. May her walls be vocal with salvation;
and her gates with praise!
