For Thy dear saints, O Lord,
[or, For Thy dear saint, O Lord,]
Who strove in Thee to live,
Who followed Thee, obeyed, adored,
Our grateful hymn receive.

They all in life and death,
With Thee their Lord in view,
Learned from Thy Holy Spirit’s breath
To suffer and to do.

Thine earthly members fit
To join Thy saints above,
In one communion ever knit,
One fellowship of love.

Jesus, Thy name we bless,
And humbly pray that we
May follow them in holiness,
Who lived and died for Thee.
