For All The Saints

For all the saints,
Who from their labors rest,
Who you by faith
Before the world confessed,
Your name, O Jesus,
Be forever blest.


O blest communion,
Fellowship divine!
We feebly struggle,
They in glory sine;
Yet all are one
Within your great design.

The golden evening
Brightens in the west:
Soon to they loyal
Faithful comes their rest:
Sweet is the calm
Of Paradise so blest.

But lo! There breaks
A yet more glorious day;
The saints triumphant
Rise in bright array;
The King of Glory
Passes on his way.

From earth’s wide bounds,
From ocean’s farthest coast,
Through gates of heav’n
Streams in the countless host;
Singing to Father,
Son and Holy Ghost.
