Miscellaneous Writings (1883-1896) by Mary Baker Eddy
Books by Mary Baker Eddy
Written on laying the corner-stone of The Mother Church
Laus Deo, it is done!
Rolled away from loving heart
Is a stone.
Lifted higher, we depart,
Laus Deo, - on this rock
(Heaven chiselled squarely good)
Stands His church, -
God is Love, and understood
By His flock.
Laus Deo, night star-lit
Slumbers not in God's embrace;
Like this stone, be in thy place:
Stand, not sit.
Grave, silent, steadfast stone,
Dirge and song and shoutings low
In thy heart
Dwell serene, - and sorrow? No,
It has none,
