The Abiding Law (Poem)

Thuo who, immutable and One,
Through varying forms dost range,
The abiding life, the steadfast law
Deep at the heart of change;—

Our restless life sweeps ever on
To regions new and strange;
But may our hearts the abiding find,
The changeless 'mid all change!
Samuel Longfellow

No impure thing is allowed to approach the Pure.
