2  Patriarch, and holy prophet,
Who prepared the way for Christ, King, apostle, saint, confessor,
Martyr and evangelist; Saintly maiden, godly matron,
Widows who have watched to prayer, Joined in holy concert, singing
To the Lord of all, are there.
3  Marching with Thy Cross, their banner,
They have triumphed, following Thee, the Captain of salvation,
Thee, their Saviour and their King.
Gladly, Lord, with Thee they suffer'd;!
Gladly, Lord, with Thee they died; I And by death to life immortal
They were born and glorified.
4 Now they reign in heavenly glory, Now they walk in golden light, Now they drink, as from a river,
Holy bliss and infinite:
Love and peace they taste for ever,
And all truth and- knowledge see J In the beatific vision Of the blessed Trinity.
Bishop Christopher Wordsworth, 1862
