Wine is a mocker, strong drink is raging,
and whosoever is deceived thereby is not wise.

Inspiring Hymns #301
Rejoice, Ye Pure in Heart
Rejoice, ye pure in heart, Rejoice, give thanks and sing; Your festal banner wave on high, the cross of Christ your King.
Bright youth and snow-crowned age, strong men and maidens meek; Raise high your free, exulting song, God’s wondrous praises speak.
With all the angel choirs, with all the saints on earth, Pour out the strains of joy and bliss true rapture, noblest mirth.
Yes, on thro’ life’s long path, still chanting as ye go; From youth to age, by night and day, in gladness and in woe.
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.
