“What Can I do To-Day” – A Poem

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!

    I came across a Poem, written in 1889, by an unknown author and wanted to share. To me, this is the practice of Christian Science and the testimonies I hear each week at the Plainfield Wednesday evening services attest to it being a cornerstone of this Church, Love.


    “What can I do to-day?
    Not praise to win, or glory to attain;
    Nor gold, or ease, or power, or love to gain;
    But to impart
    Joy to some stricken heart;
    To send a heaven-born ray
    Of hope some soul to cheer;
    To lift some weighing doubt;
    To lull some pain,
    Bring to the fold again
    Some lamb astray;
    To brighten life for some one,
    Now and here:
    This let me do to-day.”


    Beautiful, thank you
