Rejoice, Ye Pure in Heart

The United Methodist Hymnal Number 160
Text: Edward H. Plumptre, 1821-1891
Music: Arthur H. Messiter, 1834-1916
Tune: MARION, Meter: SM with Refrain

1.	Rejoice, ye pure in heart; 
	rejoice, give thanks and sing; 
	your glorious banner wave on high, 
	the cross of Christ your King.
Refrain:
	Rejoice, rejoice, 
	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)
