169. Rejoice, Ye Pure in Heart

1 Rejoice, ye pure in heart;
Rejoice, give thanks, and sing.
Your festal banner wave on high -
The cross of Christ, your King.

Rejoice, rejoice,
Rejoice, give thanks, and sing!

2 With all the angel choirs,
With all the saints on earth,
Pour out the strains of joy and bliss,
True rapture, noblest mirth! [Refrain]

3 Yes, on thro' life's long path,
Still chanting as ye go;
From youth to age, by night and day,
In gladness and in woe, [Refrain]

4 Still lift your standard high;
Still march in firm array;
As warriors, thro' the darkness toil
Till dawns the golden day. [Refrain]

5 Praise God Who reigns on high,
The Lord Whom we adore;
The Father, Son, and Holy Ghost -
One God forevermore. [Refrain]
