For you have won the battle That they might wear the crown; And now they shine in glory Reflected from your throne. 2 (Insert the stanza appropriate to the day.) 3 Then let us praise the Father And worship God the Son And sing to God the Spirit, Eternal Three in One. Till all the ransomed number Fall down before the throne, Ascribing pow'r and glory And praise to God alone. Saints and martyr (general): 4 Apostles, prophets, martyrs, And all the noble throng Who wear the spotless raiment And raise the ceaseless song - For these passed on before us, We offer praises due And walking in their footsteps, Would live our lives for you. St. Andrew, Apostle: 5 All praise, O Lord, for Andrew, The first to welcome you, Whose witness to his brother Named you Messiah true. May we, with hearts kept open To you throughout the year, Confess to friend and neighbor Your advent ever near. St. Thomas, Apostle: 6 All praise for your apostle Whose short-lived doubtings prove Your perfect two-fold nature, And all our depth of love. We who await your coming Desire your peace, O Lord; Grant us true faith to know you, Made flesh, yet God and Lord. St. Stephen, Deacon and Martyr: 7 Praise for the first of martyrs Who saw you ready stand To help in time of torment, To plead at God's right hand. They share with him who, steadfast, In death their master own, On earth the faithful witness, On high the martyr's crown. St. John, Apostle and Evangelist: 8 For your beloved disciple Exiled to Patmos' shore, And for his faithful record, We praise you evermore. Praise for the mystic vision His words to us unfold. Instill in us his longing Your glory to behold. The Holy Innocents, Martyrs: 9 All praise for infant martyrs Whom your mysterious love Called early from their warfare To share your home above. O Rachel, cease your weeping; They rest from earthbound cares. Lord, grant us hearts as guileless And crowns as bright as theirs. The Confession of St. Peter: 10 Praise for your great apostle so eager and so bold, Thrice falling, yet repentant, Thrice charged to feed your fold. Lord, make your pastors faithful To guard your flock from harm, And hold them when they waver With your almighty arm. The Conversion of St. Paul: 11 All praise for light from heaven And for the voice of awe, All praise for glorious visions The persecutor saw. O Lord, for Paul's conversion We bless your name today; Come, lighten all our darkness, And guide us on our way. St. Matthias, Apostle: 12 Lord, your abiding presence Mysterious made the choice; For one in place of Judas The faithful now rejoice. From all such false apostles Your holy Church defend, And by your parting promise Be with us to the end. Languages: English Tune Title: KING'S LYNN

Till all the ransomed number Fall down before the throne, Ascribing pow'r and glory And praise to God alone. St. Mark, Evangelist: 13 For him, O Lord, we praise you, Whose fainting heart, made strong, Poured forth the faithful Gospel To animate our song. May we, in all our weakness, Receive your pow'r divine, And all, as faithful branches, Grow strong in you, the vine. St. Philip and St. James, Apostles: 14 We praise your name for Philip, Blest guide to Greek and Jew, And for young James, the faithful Who heard and followed you. Oh, grant us grace to know you, The way, the truth, the life, And wrestle with temptation Till victors in the strife. The Nativity of St. John the Baptist: 15 We praise you for the Baptist, forerunner of the Word, Our true Elijah, making A highway for the Lord. The last and greatest prophet, He saw the dawning ray Of light that grows in splendor Until the perfect day. St. James the Elder, Apostle: 16 For him, O Lord, we praise you, Who fell to Herod's sword. He drank your cup of suff'ring And thus fulfilled your word. Lord, curb our vain impatience For glory and for gain, And nerve us for such suff'rings As glorify your name. St. Bartholomew, Apostle: 17 All praise for him whose candor Through all his doubt you saw When Philip at the fig tree Disclosed you in the law. Discern, beneath our surface, O Lord, what we can be, That by your truth made guileless, Your glory we may see. St. Matthew, Apostle and Evangelist: 18 Praise, Lord, for him whose Gospel Your human life declared, Who, worldly gain forsaking, Your path of suff'ring shared. From all unrighteous mammon, Oh, raise our eyes anew, That we, whate'er our station, May rise and follow you. St. Luke, Evangelist: 19 For that beloved physician All praise, whose Gospel shows The healer of the nations, The one who shares our woes. Your wine and oil, O Savior, Upon our spirits pour, And with true balm of Gilead Anoint us evermore. St. Simon and St. Jude, Apostles: 20 Praise, Lord, for your apostles Who sealed their faith today; One love, one hope impelled them To tread the sacred way. May we with zeal as earnest The faith of Christ maintain, And foll'wing these our brothers, At length your rest attain. Languages: English Tune Title: KING'S LYNN
