Latinised Hymns

For all thy saints, O Lord

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

For all thy saints, O Lord,
Who strove in thee to die,
And found in thee a full reward,
Accept our thankful cry.

Thine earthly members fit
To join thy saints above,
In one communion ever knit,
One fellowship of love.

Jesu, thy name we bless,
And humbly pray that we
May follow them in holiness,
Who lived and died for thee.

All might, all praise, be thine,
Father, co-equal Son,
And Spirit, bond of love divine,
While endless ages run.

Bp R. Mant

Pro sanctis, O Deus,
conatis vivere
in te, tui cultoribus,
has grates accipe.

Pro sanctis, Domine,
qui magno te suas
mutarunt vitas munere,
grates accipias.

Iungendos redde nos
eis qui sunt supra
unoque vinclo socios
amoris colliga.

Beatus qui clues,
oramus ut tibi
eorum simus similes
vivi seu mortui.

Ut Patri, Filio
laus et potentia
iunctore cum Paraclito
esto perpetua.

MM 10–14.1.00
