1
For all the saints who from their labors rest
Who Thee by faith before the world confessed
Thy name O Jesus be forever blessed
Alleluia Alleluia

2
Thou wast their rock their fortress and their might
Thou Lord their captain in the well fought fight
Thou in the darkness drear their one true Light
Alleluia Alleluia

For the apostles’ glorious company
Who bearing forth the cross o’er land and sea
Shook all the mighty world we sing to Thee
Alleluia Alleluia

4
For the evangelists by whose blest word
Like fourfold streams the garden of the Lord
Is fair and fruitful be Thy name adored
Alleluia Alleluia

5
For martyrs who with rapture kindled eye
Saw the bright crown descending from the sky
And seeing grasped it Thee we glorify
Alleluia Alleluia

O blest communion fellowship divine
We feebly struggle they in glory shine
All are one in Thee for all are Thine
Alleluia Alleluia

O may Thy soldiers faithful true and bold
Fight as the saints who nobly fought of old
And win with them the victor’s crown of gold
Alleluia Alleluia

And when the strife is fierce the warfare long
Steals on the ear the distant triumph song
And hearts are brave again and arms are strong
Alleluia Alleluia

9
The golden evening brightens in the west
Soon soon to faithful warriors comes their rest
Sweet is the calm of paradise the blessed
Alleluia Alleluia

10
But lo there breaks a yet more glorious day
The saints triumphant rise in bright array
The King of glory passes on His way
Alleluia Alleluia

11
From earth’s wide bounds from ocean’s farthest coast
Through gates of pearl streams in the countless host
And singing to Father Son and Holy Ghost
Alleluia Alleluia

Original in English: John Oxenham pseudonym of William A. Dunkerley

1
In Christ there is no East or West
In Him no South or North
But one great fellowship of love
Throughout the whole wide earth

2
In Him shall true hearts everywhere
Their high communion find
His service is the golden cord
Close binding humankind

3
Join hands then members of the faith
Whatever your race may be
Who serves my Father as His child
Is surely kin to me

4
In Christ now meet both East and West
In Him meet North and South
All Christly souls are one in Him
Throughout the whole wide earth

Shout To The North / Men Of Faith Rise Up And Sing / Shout To The North And South

Song written by:
Original in English: Martin Smith

1
Men of faith rise up and sing
Of the great and glorious King
You are strong when you feel weak
In your brokenness complete

Shout to the north and the south
Sing to the east and the west
Jesus is Savior to all
Lord of heaven and earth

2
Rise up women of truth
Stand and sing to broken hearts
Who can know the healing pow’r
Of our awesome King of love

Shout to the north and the south
Sing to the east and the west
Jesus Savior to all
Lord of heaven and earth

We’ve been through fire
We’ve been through rain
We’ve been refined by the pow’r of His name
We’ve fallen deeper in love with You
You’ve burned the truth on our lips

Shout to the north and the south
Sing to the east and the west
Jesus Savior to all
Lord of heaven and earth

3
Rise up church with broken wings
Fill this place with songs again
Of our God who reigns on high
By His grace again we’ll fly

Shout to the north and the south
Sing to the east and the west
Jesus Savior to all
Lord of heaven and earth

Shout to the north and the south
Sing to the east and the west
Jesus Savior to all
Lord of heaven and earth
