  The Pure In Heart Shall See God  

 

They shall see Him in the crimson flush
     Of morning's early light,
In the drapery of sunset,
     Around the couch of night.

When the clouds drop down their fatness,
     In late and early rain,
They shall see His glorious footprints
     On valley, hill and plain.

They shall see Him when the cyclone
     Breathes terror through the land;
They shall see Him 'mid the murmurs
     Of zephyrs soft and bland.

They shall see Him when the lips of health,
     Breath vigor through each nerve,
When pestilence clasps hands with death,
     His purposes to serve.

They shall see Him when the trembling earth
     Is rocking to and fro;
They shall see Him in the order
     The seasons come and go.

They shall see Him when the storms of war
     Sweep wildly through the land;
When peace descends like gentle dew
     They still shall see His hand.

They shall see Him in the city
     Of gems and pearls of light,
They shall see Him in his beauty,
     And walk with Him in white.

To living founts their feet shall tend,
     And Christ shall be their guide,
Beloved of God, their rest shall be
     In safety by His side.

       - Frances E. W. Harper
