For All the Saints
For all the saints, who from their labour rest,
Who Thee by faith before the world confessed
Thy Name, O Jesus, be forever blessed:
For all the saints, such as Paul, who helped set me up in my first apartment, with cooking utensils, flatware, and a TV. He could be a cranky old man, but his charity was never in question. May his memory be eternal.
For all the saints, such as John, a mischievous fellow, loved by many, but more importantly who loved many and who worked to make sure his neighbors’ needs were taken care of. May his memory be eternal.
For all the saints, such as Ayad, who confessed the name of the Lord Jesus Christ in the face of certain martyrdom. May his memory be eternal.
May their memory be eternal, O Lord, worthy of blessedness and eternal memory.
