FOR SAINT JOHN THE EVANGELIST.
Saint John, Saint John was Christ's disciple,
And Evangelist also; He for the sake of Jesus Christ
Much pains did undergo, Because he loved our Saviour Christ,
As Holy Scriptures say, And was belov'd of him also, And in his bosom lay.
Saint John for love of our Saviour
Did undergo much pain, And never ceased during life To preach Christ Jesus' name.
Saint John, he at Jerusalem
Did preach God's holy word, And for the same the spiteful Jews
They did him cruel scourge. Then did he for the same rejoice,
That he was counted worthy To suffer for the sake of Christ,
And would him not deny.
Saint John, &c. To Patmos banish'd was Saint John,
As Scripture doth record, For the testimony of Christ,
And his most holy word.
