Heart-Purity (Poem)

Blessed are the pure in heart,
For they shall see God.
—Matthew 5:8

All blessed are the pure in heart,
For they their God shall see.
A vision bright and true of Him
Who triumphed on the tree.
How can I such a heart procure
Who feel so much of sin?
Just keep it all outside thy life,
And keep thou pure within.
This heart, so fully blest of God,
Is not by magic wrought;
But is the outcome of a life
That has its pureness sought.
All may of God a vision have,
If they their souls keep pure;
Conditions met, obedience given,
And then the vision sure.

Selfishness is that life-impetus which overlooks the good, but ever ready to censure the evil in a person, principle, or thing.
It is antithetical to all that is pure, humble, or kindly disposed—often contemptuous to the loving or humane as though unworthy of consideration. It is love reversed.
—Arthur F. Milton
