Breviary Hymns and Missal Sequences, All Saints, Lauds

Thou, who dost give Eternal life,
Jesus, to Thy redeemed give aid,
And Mother of sweet clemency,
Thy servants save, O Holy Maid.

Ye many thousand Angels bright,
Ye Patriarchs and Fathers kind,
Prophets and Psalmists, pray for us,
That our poor souls may mercy find.

The Baptist, the Precursor great,
The mighty Key-bearer of Heaven,
And all Apostles, may they pray
That pardon to our sins be given.

Of Martyrs the triumphant band,
Of Priests the glorious array,
The Virgins chaste, O may they all
Our guilt unite to wash away.

All, whosoever now above
As Princes in High Heaven reign,
O listen to your suppliants prayer,
And gifts of Heaven for us obtain.

May power, honour, glory, praise,
Be to the Father and the Son,
And to the Holy Paraclete,
While everlasting ages run. Amen.

– translated by Archbishop Edward Gilpin Bagshawe, C.O., Bishop of Nottingham, England
