For all the saints, 
who from their labors rest, 
who thee by faith 
before the world confessed, 
thy name, O Jesus, 
be forever blest. 
Alleluia, Alleluia!

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!

O 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!
 
O blest communion, 
fellowship divine! 
We feebly struggle, 
they in glory shine; 
yet all are one in thee, 
for all are thine. 
Alleluia, Alleluia!
 
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, Alleluia!
 
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!
