For thy dear saints, O Lord,

Who strove in thee to live,

Who followed thee, obeyed, adored,

Our grateful hymn receive.

For thy dear saints, O Lord,

Who strove in thee to die,

Who counted thee their great reward,

Accept our thankful cry.

269

Thine earthly members fit

To join thy saints above,

In one communion ever knit,

One fellowship of love.

Jesus, thy Name we bless

And humbly pray that we

May follow them in holiness

Who lived and died for thee.

Amen.
