Yesterday with exultation

Yesterday with exultation
joined the world in celebration
of her promised Savior's birth;
yesterday the angel-nation
poured the strains of jubilation
o'er the Monarch born on earth:

But today, O deacon glorious,
by thy faith and deeds victorious,
Stephen, champion renowned,
thee we hail who, triumph gaining,
mid the faithless faith sustaining,
first of martyr saints wast found.

For the crown that fadeth never
bear thy murderer's brief endeavor;
victory waits to end the strife:
death shall be thy life's beginning,
and life's losing be the winning
of the true and better life.

from Heri mundus exultavit
