With thy high praise resounds:

Now let us praise the Lord
The confessors fearless here

With body, soul and spirit,
Boldly praise their heav'nly King; Who doth such wondrous things
Children's feebler voices there

Beyond our sense and merit;
To thy name hosannas sing.

Who from our mother's womb

And earliest infancy
g 'Midst danger's blackest frown, Hath done great things for us,
Thee hosts of martyrs own:

Praise him eternally!
Pain and shame alike they dare,

Firmly trusting in their God; 2 O gracious God, bestow
Glorying thy cross to bear,

On us while here remaining,
Sealing thus their faith with blood. An ever-cheerful mind,
9 Arise, exert thy pow'r

Thy peace be ever reigning :

Preserve us in true faith
Thou glorious Conqueror !

And christian holiness :
Help us to obtain the prize,
Help us well to close our race;

That when we go from hence
That with thee, above the skies,

We may behold thy face.
Endless joys we may possess.
