BLESSED are the pure in heart

For they shall see our God:

The secret of the Lord is theirs,

Their soul is Christ’s abode.


The Lord, who left the heavens

Our life and peace to bring,

To dwell in lowliness with me,

Their pattern and their King:


He to the lowly soul

Doth still Himself impart,

And for His dwelling and His throne

Chooseth the pure in heart.


Lord, we Thy presence seek;

May ours this blessing be;

Give us a pure and lowly heart,

A temple meet for Thee.
