O God, of all Thy warriors Lord;
Their lot, and crown of their rewards:
Do us from bond of sin set free,
Who sing Thy martyr's victory.
For this Thy soldier knew the worth
Of all the cheating joys of earth,
And passing poisoned pleasures by,
He won to Thee Who watch on high.
Yet, more than fasts this witness bore,
For joys that last forevermore;
For Thee Who are the only good,
In pains he bravely shed his blood.
Now at his pray'r, most Holy Lord,
And by his triumph, won by sword,
We beg Thy pardon and Thy peace;
From hurt of sin our soul's release.
