1 "Thou art the Christ, O Lord,
The Son of God, most high!"
Forever be adored,
That Name in earth and sky.
In which, tho' mortal strength may fail,
The saints of God at last prevail!
2 Oh, surely he was blest,
With blessedness unpriced,
Who taught of God, confessed
The Godhead in the Christ!
For of Thy Church, Lord, Thou didst own
Thy saint a true foundation-stone.
3 Thrice fallen, thrice restored!
The bitter lesson learnt,
That heart for Thee, O Lord,
With triple ardor burnt.
The cross he took he laid not down
Until he grasped the martyr's crown.
4 Oh bright triumphant faith!
Oh courage void of fears!
Oh love, most strong in death!
Oh penitential tears!
By these, Lord, keep us lest we fall,
And make us go where Thou shalt call.
