556. Rejoice, ye pure in heart

1 Rejoice, ye pure in heart!
Rejoice, give thanks and sing!
Your glorious banner wave on high,
the cross of Christ your King.

Refrain:
Rejoice, rejoice,
rejoice, give thanks, and sing.

2 With all the angel choirs,
with all the saints of earth,
pour out the strains of joy and bliss,
true rapture, noblest mirth. (Refrain)

3 Your clear hosannas raise.
and alleluias loud;
while answering echoes upward float,
like wreaths of incense cloud. (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 Still lift your standard high,
still march in firm array,
as warriors through the darkness toil,
till dawns the golden day. (Refrain)

6 At last the march shall end;
the wearied ones shall rest;
the pilgrims find their Father's house,
Jerusalem the blessed. (Refrain)

7 Then on, ye pure in heart!
Rejoice, give thanks and sing!
Your glorious banner wave on high,
the cross of Christ your King. (Refrain)
