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

CHORUS:
Rejoice, rejoice, rejoice, give thanks, and sing!

VERSE 2:
With voices full and strong,
as ocean's surging praise,
send forth the hymns our fathers loved,
the psalms of ancient days.

CHORUS:
Rejoice, rejoice, rejoice, give thanks, and sing!

VERSE 3:
Yes, on thru life's long path,
still singing as you go,
from youth to age, by night and day,
in gladness and in woe.

CHORUS:
Rejoice, rejoice, rejoice, give thanks, and sing!

VERSE 4:
At last the march shall end;
the wearied ones shall rest,
the pilgrims find their heavenly home,
Jerusalem the blessed.

CHORUS:
Rejoice, rejoice, rejoice, give thanks, and sing!

VERSE 5:
Then on, ye pure in heart!
Rejoice, give thanks, and sing!
Your glorious banner wave on high,
the cross of Christ your King.

CHORUS:
Rejoice, rejoice, rejoice, give thanks, and sing!
