O Lord of glory, King of saints

In earth and heaven above,

Thou, Who didst save the sons of men

By Thy great act of love;

+++++

Hear Thou our song, Who didst not scorn

To own the ties of earth,

Thou First-born of the brethren, hear

Those born of Thy new birth.

+++++

Hear, whilst we praise Thee for the wise,

The holy and the just,

For all who in Thy faith and fear

Departed, dust to dust.

+++++

O blessed sheep! Their wakening eyes

Gazed on the rest of God,

The hidden garden of the Lord

Prepared for their abode.

+++++

O great assembly of the Church

Upon the happy shore,

Where in the midst of all His saints

Christ walketh evermore!

+++++

Keep us in their communion high,

O everlasting Son,

Grant us in life their holiness,

Their rest, when life is done.
