For all the saints, who from their labors rest, Who Thee by faith before the world confessed, Thy name, O Jesus, be forever blest. Alleluia, Alleluia!2. Thou wast their Rock, their Fortress, and their Might; Their Guide and Captain in the well-fought fight; And Thou, the darkness drear, their one true Light.3. O may Thy soldiers, faithful, true, and bold, Now fight as saints who nobly fought of old, And win with them the victor’s crown of gold.4. From earth’s wide bounds, from ocean’s farthest coast, Thru gates of pearl streams in the countless host, They praise the Father, Son, and Holy Ghost.
