Hymnary Friends,

Please pardon this brief interruption, and please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. Here's why.

Each month half a million people visit this website for free access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet. But this project does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. Twice a year we hold a fund drive, and these drives are critical to our future.

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure giving site. Or you can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.
Harry Plantinga

208. Blessed are the pure in heart

1 Blessed are the pure in heart,
They have loved the better part;
When life’s journey they have trod,
They shall go to see their God.
Till in glory they appear,
They shall often see Him here;
And His grace shall learn to know
In His glorious works below.

2 When the sun begins to rise,
Spreading brightness through the skies,
They will love to praise and bless
Christ, the Son of Righteousness.
In the watches of the night,
When the stars are clear and bright,
“Thus the just shall shine” they say,
“In the Resurrection day.”

3 When the leaves in autumn die,
Falling fast and silently,
“These,” they thing, “that now seem dead,
Shall in spring lift up their head.”
God in every thing they see;
First in all their thoughts is He;
They have loved the better part;—
Blessed are the pure in heart!
