10.10 4 (FE 23) 
"We also are compassed about with so
great a cloud of witnesses." Heb.12:1

1.  FOR all the saints who from their labours rest 

     Who Thee by faith before the world confessed 

     Thy name, O Jesus, be for ever bless'd 

     Alleluia, Alleluia.

2.  Thou wast their rock, their fortress and 

     their might

     Thou, Lord, their Captain in the well 

     fought fight

     Thou, in the darkness Thou their own 

     true light Alleluia.

3.  Oh may Their soldier, faithful true and bold 

     Fight as the saints who nobly fought of old 

     And win with them, the victor crown

     of gold Alleluia.

4.  Oh blest Communion fellowship divine 

     We fecbly struggle, they in glory Shine 

     Yet all are one in Thee for all are Thine 


5.  And when the strife is fierce, the warfare long 

     Steals on the ear the distant triumph song 

      And hearts are brave again and arms are  

     strong Alleluia.

6.  The golden evening brightens in the west: 

     Soon soon to faithful warriors come the rest 

     Sweet is the calm of Paradise the bless’d 


7.  But Lo, there breaks a yet more glorious day: 

     The Saints triumphant rise in bright array 

     The King of Glory passes on His way 


8.  From earth’s wide bounds from ocean's 

     farthest coast 

     Through gates of pearl streams in the 

     countless host

     Singing to Father Son and Holy Ghost 

     Alleluia.  Amen
