Verse 1
For all the saints who from their labours rest, 
Who Thee by faith before the world confess, 
Thy name, O Jesus, be forever blest, 
Alleluia! Alleluia! 
Verse 2
Thou wast their Rock, their Fortress, and their Might; 
Thou, Lord, their Captain in the well-fought fight; 
Thou, in the darkness drear, their one true Light. 
Alleluia! Alleluia! 
Verse 3
Oh, may Thy soldiers, faithful, true and bold, 
Fight as the saints who nobly fought of old 
And win with them the victor's crown of gold. 
Alleluia! Alleluia! 
Verse 4
O blest communion, fellowship divine, 
We feebly struggle, they in glory shine; 
Yet all are one in Thee, for all are Thine. 
Alleluia! Alleluia! 
Verse 5
And when the fight is fierce, the warfare long, 
Steals on the ear the distant triumph song, 
And hearts are brave again, and arms are strong. 
Alleluia! Alleluia! 
Verse 6
But, lo, there breaks a yet more glorious day; 
The saints triumphant rise in bright array; 
The King of Glory passes on His way. 
Alleluia! Alleluia! 
Verse 7
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! Alleluia! 
Verse 8
The golden evening brightens in the west; 
Soon, soon, to faithful warriors cometh rest. 
Sweet is the calm of Paradise the blest. 
Alleluia! Alleluia!
