O thou, whose all-redeeming might

O thou, whose all-redeeming might crowns every saint in glory bright, on this commemoration day hear us, good Jesu, while we pray. Contending for thy holy name thy servants earned their saintly fame, which pious hearts with praise revere in constant memory year by year. Earth’s fleeting joys they counted naught, for higher, truer joys they sought, and now with angels round the throne unfading treasures are their own. O grant that we, most gracious God, may follow in the steps they trod; and, freed from every stain of sin, as they have won may also win. To thee, O Christ, our loving King, all glory, praise and thanks we bring; whom with the Father we adore, and Holy Ghost for evermore. Amen.
