From the Christian Science Hymnal: Hymn 202
O dreamer, leave thy dreams for joyful waking, O captive, rise and sing, for thou art free;The Christ is here, all dreams of error breaking, unloosing bonds of all captivity.
He comes to bless thee on his wings of healing; to banish pain, and wipe all tears away; He comes anew, to humble hearts revealing the mounting footsteps of the upward way.
He comes to give thee joy for desolation, beauty for ashes of the vanished years; For every tear to bring full compensation, to give thee confidence for all thy fears.
He comes to call the dumb to joyful singing; the deaf to hear; the blinded eyes to see;The glorious tidings of salvation bringing. O captive, rise, thy Saviour comes to thee.
