—Matt. XIX 17.
Keep the commandments: it is less than naught
To know and to approve them with thy mind,
If to obedience thou giv'st no thought.
So if thou would'st life's richest treasure find,
Live thy belief: clothe thou each new-born truth
Will garments of thy personality;
So shall thy spirit keep perpetual youth,
Thy God-bound wishes soar eternally,
And thou shalt stand a beacon light sublime,
Pointing Heaven's pathway through the mists of time.
—Dr. Ralph Cudworth
