Blest are the pure in heart

Blest 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 men, their pattern and their king.

Still to the lowly soul he doth 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.
