Ancient Hymns.

Thanks for all Saints.

For all Thy saints, O God,

Who strove in Christ to live,

Who followed him, obeyed, adored,

Our grateful hymn receive.

For all Thy saints, O God,

Accept our thankful cry,

Who counted Christ their great reward,

And yearned for him to die.

They all, in life and death,

With him, their Lord, in view,

Learned from Thy holy spirit’s breath

To suffer and to do.

For this Thy name we bless,

And humbly pray that we

May follow them in holiness,

And live and die in Thee.
