161. 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:
Hosanna! Hosanna!
Rejoice, give thanks, and sing.

2 Your clear hosannas raise,
and alleluias loud;
whilst answering echoes upward float,
like wreaths of incense cloud.
[Refrain]

3 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]

4 At last the march shall end;
the wearied ones shall rest;
the pilgrims find their heavenly home,
Jerusalem the blest.
[Refrain]

5 Praise God who reigns on high,
the Lord whom we adore,
the Father, Son, and Holy Ghost,
one God forevermore.
[Refrain]
