Glory to Thee, O God

Representative Text

1 Glory to thee, O God,
for all thy saints in light,
who nobly strove and conquered in the well-fought fight.
Their praises sing,
who life out-poured by fire and sword for Christ their King.

2 Thanks be to thee, O Lord,
for saints thy Spirit stirred
in humble paths to live thy life and speak thy word.
Unnumbered they,
whose candles shine to lead our footsteps after thine.

3 Lord God of truth and love,
'thy kingdom come', we pray;
give us thy grace to know thy truth and walk thy way:
that here on earth
thy will be done, till saints in earth and heaven are one.
