Representative Text

1. O Thou whose all redeeming might
Crowns every chief in faith’s true fight,
On this commemoration day
Hear us, good Jesu, while we pray.

2. In faithful strife for Thy dear name
Thy servant earned the saintly fame,
Which pious hearts with praise revere
In constant memory year by year.

3. Earth’s fleeting joys he counted naught,
For higher, truer joys he sought,
And now, with angels round the Thy throne,
Unfading treasures are his own.

4. O grant that we, most gracious God,
May follow in the steps he trod;
And, freed from every stain of sin,
As he hath won may also win.

5. To Thee, O Christ, our loving king,
All glory, praise, and thanks we bring;
Whom with the Father we adore
And Holy Ghost forevermore.
