For all the saints
Tune: Sine Nomine  
Metre: 10 10 10 and alleluia  

 

For all the saints, who from their labours rest,

Who thee by faith before the world confessed,

Thy Name, O Jesus, be for ever blest.

Alleluia! Alleluia!

 

Thou wast their Rock, their Fortress and their Might;

Thou, Lord, their Captain in the well-fought fight;

Thou, in the darkness drear their one true Light.

Alleluia! Alleluia!

 

O may thy soldiers, faithful, true, and bold,

Fight as the saints who nobly fought of old;

And win, with them, the victorís crown of gold.

Alleluia! Alleluia!

 

O blest communion, fellowship divine!

We feebly struggle, they in glory shine;

Yet all are one in thee, for all are thine.

Alleluia! Alleluia!

 

And when the strife is fierce, the warfare long,

Steals on the ear the distant triumph song,

And hearts are brave again, and arms are strong.

Alleluia! Alleluia!

 

The golden evening brightens in the west;

Soon, soon to faithful warriors cometh rest;

Sweet is the calm of Paradise the blest.

Alleluia! Alleluia!

 

But, lo there breaks a yet more glorious day;

The saints triumphant rise in bright array;

The King of Glory passes on his way.

Alleluia! Alleluia!

 

From earthís wide bounds, from oceanís farthest coast,

Through gates of pearl streams in the countless host,

Singing to Father, Son, and Holy Ghost,

Alleluia! Alleluia!
