Rejoice, Ye Pure in Heart
What I like most about this hymn tune is that it twists, turns, and teeters on the edge of chaos without ever losing its melodic momentum. I would be very pleased to turn this into a festive choral anthem with organ and brass. If your church commissions it, you get to name the hymn tune! Alternately, if you want to write a new hymn text (126.96.36.199 with refrain) to this tune, I’d be happy to collaborate with you.
This hymn is a free download. If you sing this song in your church please report its use to CCLI or OneLicense.
