Blessed Is the Heart That's Pure

Blessed Is the Heart That's Pure

Blessed is the heart that's pure,
And, thus I clean my heart, my eyes,
To see Thee, God, receive Thy cure.

But, though I clean, I can't endure,
I taint my heart,  my effort dies,
Blessed is the heart that's pure.

Unblest am I who can't procure
The heart, the eyes, the holy prize,
To see Thee, God, receive Thy cure.

And yet, for want of Thee, I'm sure,
My heart, my eyes Thee made replies,
"Blessed is the heart that's pure."

What cleaning agent will ensure,
What work, dear God, can I devise,
To see Thee, God, receive Thy cure?

I'll drink the cup of Thy liqueur,
I'll eat Thy bread, with Thee arise,
Blessed is the heart that's pure,
To see Thee, God, receive Thy cure.

About the Poet
Husband, father, grandfather, and each title is my joy. As a youth, poetry was a means to express the inexpressable. I was attracted to (and still am) the beauty and brevity of verse. All flows out from God, and like a proper prayer, can flow back.
