Manuscript Description: Printed Order of Services with handwritten notations by Mary Baker Eddy.
Editorial Note: Mary Baker Eddy gave this sermon at Odd Fellows Hall to approximately 800 people in attendance at this Communion service. The Christian Science Journal reported: "The Sermon of the Rev. M. B. G. Eddy, pastor of the Church of Christ, before a large audience, Communion Sabbath, Feb. 8th, cannot be reported in the columns of the "Journal" as was hoped, for the stenographic notes were found unavailable. The services were especially impressive, and the high spiritual interpretation of the text, I Corinthians,As Written:, 10:18, elicited warm commendations from many clergymen present. After the sermon, fourteen candidates were admitted to Church membership." (Vol. III, 1885, p. 14)

Hymn

O Love! O Life! our faith and sight They presence maketh one: As through transfigured clouds of white, We trace the noon-day sun,--

So to our mortal eys subdued Flesh-veiled, but not concealed, We know in thee the fatherhood And heart of God revealed.

We faintly hear, we dimly see, In differing phrase we pray; But, dim or clear, we own in thee The Light, the Truth, the Way.

To do thy will is more than praise, As words are less than deeds; And simple trust can find thy ways We miss with chart of creeds.

Our Friend, our Brother, and our Lord, What may thy service be? Nor name, nor form, nor ritual word, But simply follow thee.

Scripture Reading.

Lord's Prayer.

Hymn.

How beauteous were the marks divine That in thy meekness used to shine, That lit thy lonely pathway, trod In wonderous love, O Son of God!

Oh, who like thee, so cal, so bright, So pure, so made to live in light? Oh, hwo like thee did ever go So patient through a world of woe?

Oh, who like thee so humbly bore The scorn, the scoffs of men, before? So meek, forgiving, godlike, high, So glorious in humility.

Oh, in thy light be mine to go, Illuming all my way of woe; And give me ever on the road To trace thy footsteps, Son of God!

Silent Prayer.

Hymn.

Call the Lord they sure salvation, Rest beneath the Almighty's shade: In his secret habitation Dwell, nor ever be dismayed.

There no tumult can alarm thee, Thou shalt dread no hidden snare; Guile nor violence shall harm thee In eternal safeguard there.

He shall charge his angel legions Watch and ward o’er thee to keep, Though thou walk thro’ hostile regions, Though in desert wilds thou sleep.

Since, with pure and firm affection. Thou on God hast set thy love, With the wing of his protection He shall shield thee from above.

Benediction.
