Mary Baker Eddy & Ryan Winslow – Mother’s Evening Prayer – Thursday 11 December 2014


I’ve really been enamored with Mrs. Eddy’s poetry.  She delivers such incredible, comforting messages. 

She is giving us the opportunity to learn how to pray.

Song Title:

Mother’s Evening Prayer

By Mary Baker Eddy




O gentle presence, peace and joy and power;
O Life divine, that owns each waiting hour,
Thou Love that guards the nestling’s faltering flight!
Keep Thou my child on upward wing tonight.

Love is our refuge; only with mine eye
Can I behold the snare, the pit, the fall:
His habitation high is here, and nigh,
His arm encircles me, and mine, and all.

O make me glad for every scalding tear,
For hope deferred, ingratitude, disdain!
Wait, and love more for every hate, and fear
No ill, — since God is good, and loss is gain.

Beneath the shadow of His mighty wing;
In that sweet secret of the narrow way,
Seeking and finding, with the angels sing:
“Lo, I am with you alway,” — watch and pray.

No snare, no fowler, pestilence or pain;
No night drops down upon the troubled breast,
When heaven’s aftersmile earth’s tear-drops gain,
And mother finds her home and heav’nly rest.

    Thanks for the posting today of musician Ryan Winslow. He has a gorgeous baritone voice! It’s always nice to get a new setting of Mrs. Eddy’s poems and Ryan has taken a deep dive into Mother’s Evening Prayer and mined it for new inspiration. I understand MBE penned this during great concern for her son George or her adopted son Foster Eddy. Beautiful…

    I literally felt better after listening to the song.

    I learned from Ryan’s interview that Mrs. Eddy was also teaching us how to pray.

    Nice job.

    This is very healing.
