I saw the clothes in Tailor’s shop,
They looked just made for me.
I tried them on, they fitted snug,
My purchase meant to be.
One piece it shone like Life divine,
Another showed much Love!
And fully wrapped with strongest Truth,
All fitted like a glove.
I asked how much the garments cost,
The Tailor said “They’re free!
These clothes divine are heaven made
And glow with purity!”
I felt so good in wearing them,
It gave me vision new,
I quite forgot what I had worn,
Old mortal clothes were through!
For when I left the changing room
There was no turning back:
I realised that with these clothes
I never more would lack.
Life, Truth and Love now what I wear,
They’re perfect and sublime.
Thus I express what’s Tailor-made,
And wear them all the time.
II Cor 5:1-4
For we know that if our earthly house of this tabernacle were dissolved, we have a building of God, an house not made with hands, eternal in the heavens. For in this we groan, earnestly desiring to be clothed upon with our house which is from heaven: If so be that being clothed we shall not be found naked. For we that are in this tabernacle do groan, being burdened: not for that we would be unclothed, but clothed upon, that mortality might be swallowed up of life.
Consider the lilies how they grow: they toil not, they spin not; and yet I say unto you, that Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these. If then God so clothe the grass, which is to-day in the field, and to-morrow is cast into the oven; how much more will he clothe you, O ye of little faith?
Science and Health 530:5
In divine Science, man is sustained by God, the divine Principle of being. The earth, at God's command, brings forth food for man's use. Knowing this, Jesus once said, "Take no thought for your life, what ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink," — presuming not on the prerogative of his creator, but recognizing God, the Father and Mother of all, as able to feed and clothe man as He doth the lilies.
