Unto the Pure

Unto the pure, all things are pure?
      It seems to be untrue,
For in a world of sin and wrong
      Things gain an impure hue.

But to pure who shun the wrong
      And flee from sin and vice,
Who keep their garments spotless, white
      This statement doeth suffice.

Their eyes are fixed upon a home
      Which is not of the earth.
They covet not the transient wealth
      Of no eternal worth.

They do not isolate themselves
      Apart – they walk within.
Upon the dusty roads Christ walked
       They keep themselves from sin.
