468. For All Thy Saints, O Lord

1 For all Thy saints, O Lord,
Who strove in Thee to live,
Who followed Thee, obeyed, adored,
Our grateful hymn receive.

2 For all Thy saints, O Lord,
Who strove in Thee to die,
Who counted Thee their great Reward,
Accept out thankful cry.

3 They all in life or death,
With Thee, their Lord, in view,
Learned from Thy Holy Spirit's breath
To suffer and to do.

4 For this Thy name we bless
And humbly pray that we
May follow them in holiness
And live and die in Thee.

Amen.
