GLORIOUS SAINT WHOSE DEEDS IMMORTAL


1 Glorious Saint whose deeds immortal
We extol and magnify,
Radiant star, whose rising splendor
Set ablaze the orient sky;
Oh, how bright today thy shining
'Midst the saints of God on high!
2 Beautiful those feet that caried
News of God's redemptive plan,
Crossing lands and furthest oceans,
Bringing peace to fallen man,
Herald who with torch uplifted
Realms of darkness overran.
3 Great thy labors in the vineyard,
Great the harvest gathered in,
Greater still thy soul's ambition
Further continents to win;
But God willed thy greatest conquests
Should henceforth in heav'n begin.
4 Father, my we share thy triumphs,
Join thee henceforth in the fight,
May our lives be flaming torches,
Pure and holy, burning bright,
Driving hence the pow'rs of darkness,
Leading to eternal light.
