1. An exile for the faith,
Of His incarnate Lord,
Beyond the stars, beyond all space,
His soul in vision soared.

2. There saw in glory Him
Who liveth, and was dead,
There Judah’s Lion, and the Lamb
That for our ransom bled.

3. There of the kingdom learned
The mysteries sublime;
How, sown in martyrs’ blood, the faith
Should spread from clime to clime.

4. Lord, give us grace, like him,
In Thee to live and die;
To spurn the fleeting things of earth,
And seek for joys on high.

5. Jesu, our risen Lord,
We praise Thee and adore,
Who art with God the Father One
And Spirit evermore.

Le Tourneux, Nicolas, was born of poor parents at Rouen, April 30, 1640. The uncommon ability he displayed at an early age attracted the notice of M. du Fosset, Maître des Comptes at Rouen, who sent him to the Jesuits' college at Paris, where he made remarkable progress in his studies. He then retired to Touraine, where he passed some time with a pious ecclesiastic in the practice of prayer and penitential exercises. His friend, observing that he had a gift for preaching, advised him to return to Rouen. This he did, and adopted the clerical profession, and was in 1662 admitted to priests' orders by special dispensation, though still under canonical age.
