Blest are the pure, whose hearts are clean,
Who ne­ver tread the ways of sin;
With end­less plea­sures they shall see
A God of spot­less pu­ri­ty.

Blest are the men of peace­ful life,
Who quench the coals of grow­ing strife,
They shall be called the heirs of bliss,
The sons of God, the God of peace.
