Saint of God, elect and precious, Protomartyr Stephen, bright
With thy love of amplest measure, Shining round thee like a light;
Who to God commendedst, dying, Them that did thee all despite:
Glitters now the crown above thee, Figured in thy sacred name:
O that we, who truly love thee, May have portion in the same;
In the dreadful day of judgment Fearing neither sin nor shame.
Laud to God, and might, and honour, Who with flowers of rosy dye
Crowned thy forehead, and hath placed thee In the starry throne on high:
He direct us, he protect us From death's sting eternally
By all your saints still striving For all your saints at rest,
Your holy name, O Jesus, Forevermore be blest!
You rose, our King victorious, That they might wear the crown
And ever shine in splendour Reflected from your throne.
All praise, O Lord, for Stephen who, martyred, saw you stand
to help in time of torment, to plead at God’s right hand.
Like you, our suff’ring Saviour, his enemies he blessed,
with “Lord, receive my spirit”, his faith, in death, confessed.
Then let us praise the Father And worship God the Son
And sing to God the Spirit,Eternal Three in One,
Till all the ransomed number Who stand before the throne,
Ascribe all power and glory And praise to God alone.
