113. 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 Bright youth and snow-crowned age,
strong souls and spirits meek,
raise high your free, exulting song,
God's wondrous praises speak. [Refrain]

3 With voice as full and strong
as ocean's surging praise,
send forth the hymns the saints have loved,
the psalms of ancient days. [Refrain]

4 Yes, on through life’s long path,
still chanting as you go,
from youth to age, by night and day,
in gladness and in woe. [Refrain]
