27. 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 voice as full and strong
As ocean’s surging praise,
Send forth the sturdy hymns of old,
The psalms of ancient days. [Refrain]

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

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

5 Praise Him who reigns on high,
The Lord whom we adore,
The Father, Son and Holy Ghost,
One God forever more. [Refrain]
