The Hymnal Of The Protestant Episcopal Church In The Usa by Various

Holy Days: All Saints 300. Lo! what a cloud of witnesses

C.M.

Albano:

Vincent Novello, 1800

Scotch Paraphrase, 1745

Lo! what a cloud of witnesses

Encompass us around!

Men once like us with suffering tried,

But now with glory crowned.

Let us, with zeal like theirs inspired,

Strive in the Christian race;

And, freed from every weight of sin,

Their holy footsteps trace.

Behold a Witness nobler still,

Who trod affliction's path;

Jesus, the author, finisher,

Rewarder of our faith.

He, for the joy before him set,

And moved by pitying love,

Endured the cross, despised the shame,

And now he reigns above.

Thither, forgetting things behind,

Press we to God's right hand;

There, with the Saviour and his saints,

Triumphantly to stand.
