Bless'd Are the Pure in Heart

Author: John Keble Meter: D Appears in 398 hymnals Matching Instances: 1 Lyrics: 1 Bless'd are the pure in heart, for they shall see our God; the secret of the Lord is theirs; their soul is Christ's abode. Might mortal thought presume to guess an angel's lay, such are the notes that echo through the courts of heav'n today. 2 Such the triumphal hymns on Zion's Prince that wait, in high procession passing on towards his temple gate. Give ear, ye kings; bow down, ye rulers of the earth– this, this is he, your priest by grace, your God and King by birth. 3 No pomp of earthly guards attends with sword and spear, and all defying, dauntless, look their monarch's way to clear: yet are there more with him than all that are with you– the armies of the highest heav'n, all righteous, good, and true. 4 But who is he, though bowed by years, erect in heart, whose prayers are struggling with his tears? "Lord, let me now depart; now hath thy servant seen thy saving health, O Lord: 'tis time that I depart in peace, according to thy word." 5 Yet swells the pomp: one more comes forth to bless her God: full four-score years, meek widow, she her heav'nward way hath trod: she who to earthly joys so long had giv'n farewell, now sees, unlooked for, heav'n on earth, Christ in his Israel. 6 Wide open from that hour the temple gates are set, and still the saints rejoicing there the holy Child have met. Still to the lowly soul he doth himself impart, and for his cradle and his throne chooseth the pure in heart.
