421 ~ For All the Saints



1

For all the saints who from their labors rest,
Who Thee by faith before the world confessed,
Thy name, O Jesus, be forever blest:
Alleluia!
Alleluia!


2

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!


3

O may Thy soldiers, faithful, true, and bold,
Fight as the saints who nobly fought of old,
And win with them the victor's crown of gold:
Alleluia!
Alleluia!


4

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!


5

From earth's wide bounds, from ocean's farthest coast,
Thro' gates of pearl streams in the countless host,
Singing to Father, Son, and Holy Ghost,
Alleluia!
Alleluia!
