Savior, sprinkle many nations

Heavenly Father, Send Thy Blessing

King of Saints, to Whom the Number

King of saints, to Whom the number
Of Thy starry host is known,
Many a name, by man forgotten,
Lives for ever round Thy throne:
Lights, which earth-born mists have darkened,
There are shining full and clear,
Princes in the court of heaven,
Nameless, unremembered here.
