The "be yourself" hymn

I'm traveling today and tomorrow, so won't be posting again until Monday. Thought I'd leave you with this poem, kind of an interesting counterbalance to the mortals/immortals conversation and the last poem I featured (they share facing pages in the words only hymnal I have).

Hymn 20, Christian Science Hymnal
by Kate Colby

Be true and list the voice within,
Be true unto thy high ideal,
Thy perfect self, that knows no sin,
That self that is the only real.

God is the only perfect One:
My perfect self is one with Him;
So man is seen as God's own son,
When Truth dispels the shadows dim.

True to our God whose name is Love,
We shall fulfill our Father's plan;
For true means true to God above,
To self, and to our fellow man.

Love to all,
