Come, let us join the Church above
the martyr's praise to sing,
that soldier true who gave today
his life-blood for his King.
Today through heaven the cry rang out,
Great God, the fight is done!
Room for the Victor! lo, his crown
Christ's valiant saint hath won!
The martyr's triumph shall endure,
his fame cannot dim:
see how he calls on one and all
to rise and follow him!
We know that in our Savior Christ
the blessed our troubles heed;
that saints in heaven to saints on earth
are very near indeed.
The cloud of witnesses look down,
they cheer us on to fight;
to God their prayers go up that he
may lead their friends aright.
Brave martyr, we will follow till
to God we yield our breath;
and learn from thee to spurn the world
and mock at pain and death!
To Christ, for whom the martyrs die,
all laud and glory be,
with Father and with Holy Ghost,
to all eternity.
