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!
