For All Thy Saints, O Lord

Melody - "Energy", William H. Monk, 1861; Seq. by Richard Jordan

Richard Mant, 1837

For all Thy saints, O Lord,
Who strove in Thee to live,
Who followed Thee, obeyed, adored,
Our grateful hymn receive.

2. For all Thy saints, O God,
Accept our thankful cry,
Who counted Christ their great Reward,
And yearned for Him to die.

3. Thy mystic members fit
To join Thy saints above,
In one unmixed communion knit
And fellowship of love.

4.They all in life and death,
With Thee, their Lord, in view,
Learned from Thy Holy Spirit's breath
To suffer and to do.

5. For this Thy name we bless
And humbly pray that we
May follow them in holiness
And live and die in Thee.

6. To God the Father, Son,
And Spirit, ever blest,
The One in Three, the Three in One,
Be endless praise addressed.
