Latinised Hymns

'Twas by thy blood, immortal Lamb

'Twas by thy blood, immortal Lamb,
Thine armies trod the tempter down;
'Twas by thy word and powerful name
They gained the battle and renown.

Rejoice, ye heavens! let every star
Shine with new glories round the sky;
Saints, while ye sing the heavenly war,
Raise your Deliverer's name on high.

I. Watts

Tui per sanguinem tuum
presserunt, Agne, Satanam
potensque per vocabulum
sunt bello nacti gloriam.

Gaudete, caeli; sidera,
novate vos in aethere;
cantando, sancti, proelia
Salvantis nomen tollite.
