1. Rejoice ye pure in heart; Rejoice, give thanks, and sing; Your festal banner wave on high, The cross of Christ your king.
Refrain: Rejoice, rejoice, rejoice, Give thanks, and sing.
2. Still lift your standard high, Still march in firm array, As warriors through the darkness toil, Till dawns the golden day.
3. Yes, on through life’s long path, Still chanting as you go; From youth to age, by night and day, In gladness and in woe.
4. Then on, ye pure in heart! Rejoice, give thanks, and sing! Your festal banner wave on high, The cross of Christ your King.
