Pure in Heart

Pure in heart may I be,
Yea, may my heart be pure;
May it be clean and radiant,
May my love endure.

I live for You, my Master,
I seek You and Your will;
Purify my heart then,
With Your Spirit fill.

Your radiant face,
My Lord, I long to see;
I am Yours, my Jesus,
Now and eternally.

Surely the pure in heart
Shall see Your glorious face;
They shall taste Heaven
And feel Your embrace.

Let not a blemish then
Taint my purity;
In me Your luminous love
May all others see.

For who is pure like You?
Whose heart is as clean?
No lovelier sight than You,
My Lord, have I seen.

 Glimmering, glowing,
Far brighter than the sun,
Such is Your heart
Shining, Eternal One.

My Redeemer, my King,
Your loves does endure;
My heart is one with Yours,
Yea, my heart You make pure.
