The Heart Of Purity
"Blessed are the pure in heart, for
they shall see God." (1)
The pure heart treasures chastity:
It forms the basis of its love;
When girded with humility,
It draws its strength from God above.
The pure heart treasures poverty:
When emptied of its self and things,
There's room to draw His Majesty
and all the treasures that He brings.
The pure heart is obedient:
It finds the way within God's will;
It follows the Omniscient:
Each step He'll lead; each need He'll
The pure heart is a fragrant rose:
Petalled with love; perfumed with grace.
Through it, the beauty of God flows
Drawing each soul to His embrace!
