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.

Bright youth and snow crowned age
Strong men and maidens meek
Raise high your free, exultant song
God's wondrous praises speak.

Refrain

Yes onward, onward still
With hymn, and chant and song
Through gate, and porch and columned aisle
The hallowed pathways throng.

Refrain

With all the angel choirs
With all the saints of earth
Pour out the strains of joy and bliss
True rapture, noblest mirth.

Refrain

Your clear hosannas raise
And alleluias loud
Whilst answering echoes upward float
Like wreaths of incense cloud.

Refrain

With voice as full and strong
As ocean's surging praise
Send forth the hymns our fathers loved
The psalms of ancient days.

Refrain

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

Still lift your standard high
Still march in firm array
As warriors through the darkness toil
Till dawns the golden day.

Refrain

At last the march shall end
The wearied ones shall rest
The pilgrims find their heavenly home
Jerusalem the blessed.

Refrain

Then on, ye pure in heart
Rejoice, give thanks and sing
Your glorious banner wave on high
The cross of Christ your King.

Refrain

Praise Him Who reigns on high
The Lord Whom we adore
The Father, Son and Holy Ghost
One God forevermore.

Refrain
