1 By all your saints still striving,
for all your saints at rest,
your holy name, O Jesus,
forevermore be blessed!
For those passed on before us,
we sing our praise anew
and, walking in their footsteps,
would live our lives for you.
2 We praise you for the Baptist,
forerunner of the Word,
our true Elijah, making
a highway for the Lord.
The last and greatest prophet,
he saw the dawning ray
of light that grows in splendor
until the perfect day.
3 All praise, O Lord, for Andrew,
the first to welcome you,
whose witness to his brother
named you Messiah true.
May we, with hearts kept open
to you throughout the year
proclaim to friend and neighbor
your advent ever near.
4 For Magdalene we praise you,
steadfast at cross and tomb.
Your “Mary!” in the garden
dispelled her tears and gloom.
Apostle to the apostles,
she ran to spread the word.
Send us to shout the good news
that we have seen the Lord!
5 We pray for saints we know not,
for saints still yet to be,
for grace to bear true witness
and serve you faithfully,
till all the ransomed number
who stand before the throne
ascribe all power and glory
and praise to God alone.

From all Thy saints in warfare, for all Thy saints at rest. Earl Nelson. [Saints' Days, Special and General.] This hymn was suggested to the author by the hymn, "Ye saints! in blest communion," by Dr. Monsell, in his Hymns of Love and Praise, 1863, the design being the same, which is to furnish a general beginning and ending suitable for a hymn for any special Saint's Day, and to supply intermediate stanzas suitable for the, persons specially to be commemorated. It was first published in a small volume entitled, Hymn for Saints’ Day, and other Hymns. By a Layman, 1864. Some verses were contributed by friends of the author; and the whole was revised by himself for the Sarum Hymnal, 1868" (Church Hymns folio edition, Notes, p. xliv.). Usually this text is repeated in the hymn-books. The Society for Promoting Christian Knowledge Church Hymns is an exception in favour of a few minor alterations, and the addition of a new stanza (xviii.) for "All Saints."
