Representative Text

1. For man the Savior shed
His all atoning blood,
And, oh, shall ransomed man refuse
To suffer for his God?

2. Ashamed who now can be
To own the Crucified?
Nay, rather be our glory this,
To die for Him who died?

3. So felt Thy martyr, Lord;
By Thy right hand sustained,
He waged for Thee the battle’s strife,
And threatened death disdained.

4. Upon the golden crown
Gazing with eager breath,
He fought as one who fain would die,
And, dying, conquer death.

5. Alone he stood unmoved
Amid his cruel foes;
Oh, wondrous was the might that then
Above his torturers rose!

6. Lord, give us grace to bear
Like him our cross of shame,
To do and suffer what Thou wilt,
For love of Thy dear name.

7. Jesu, the king of saints,
We praise Thee and adore,
Who art, with God the Father One
And Spirit evermore.

Santeüil, Jean-Baptiste de, was born in Paris of a good family on May 12, 1630. He was one of the regular Canons of St. Victor, at Paris, and, under the name of Santolius Victorinus, was distinguished as a writer of Latin poetry. Many of his hymns appeared in the Cluniac Breviary 1686, and the Paris Breviaries 1680 and 1736, and several have been translated into English, and are in common use in Great Britain and America. He was very jocose in disposition and singular in his habits. When on a journey he died at Dijon, Aug. 5, 1697. His Hymni Sacri et Novi were published at Paris in 1689, and again, enlarged, in 1698.
