Joy Cometh in the Morning

The Bulletin Board is for gratitude for Christian Science and the Church, as well as timely excerpts from the Bible, the works of Mrs. Eddy, and the early workers that help and encourage. We are very grateful for all posts that conform to these guidelines, but will edit or remove anything that the Practitioners feel is not in complete accord with pure Christian Science or in any way disrespectful of it.

We also ask that you keep your postings as concise as possible. If you quote the Bible, please use The King James Version, as this is what Mrs. Eddy used. Thank you!

    Ps. 30:5 For his anger endureth but a moment; in his favour is life: weeping may endure for a night, but joy cometh in the morning.

    Bliss Knapp tells a story of Mrs. Eddy visiting the Knapp home and having a very troublesome night dealing with an issue; most likely pertaining to the Cause of Christian Science. At some point Bliss’s sister sat down at the piano and played the hymn, “Joy Cometh in the Morning” (later included as Hymn # 425 in the Christian Science Hymnal) with others joining in singing. Mrs. Eddy from her room asked them to sing it again and when they were finished came forth refreshed; the hymn having dispelled the issue she was dealing with. Whenever I see or hear Ps. 30 or hymn # 425 I can’t help but think of this story:)
