344. In token that thou shalt not fear

C.M.

Tallis' Ordinal:

Thomas Tallis, 1567

Henry Alford, 1832

In token that thou shalt not fear

Christ crucified to own,

We print the cross upon thee here,

And stamp thee his alone.

313

In token that thou shalt not blush

To glory in his Name,

We blazon here upon thy front

His glory and his shame.

In token that thou too shalt tread

The path he traveled by,

Endure the cross, despise the shame,

And sit thee down on high;

Thus outwardly and visibly

We seal thee for his own:

And may the brow that wears his cross

Hereafter share his crown.

Amen.
