#26 Rejoice, Ye Pure in Heart

Standard

(Part of a series singing through the hymnbook I grew up with: Great Hymns of the Faith)

1

Rejoice, ye pure in heart, Rejoice, give thanks and sing;

You festal banner wave on high, The cross of Christ your King;

REFRAIN

Rejoice, (Rejoice), rejoice (rejoice), Rejoice, give thanks and sing.

2

Bright youth and snow-crowned age, strong men and maidens 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 our fathers loved, The psalms of ancient days;

Refrain

4

With all the angel choirs, With all the saints on earth;

Pour out the strains of joy and bliss; True rapture, noblest mirth;

Refrain

5

Still lift your standard high, Still march in firm array,

As warriors thru the darkness toil Till dawns the golden day;

Refrain
