HIGH LET OUR VOICES RAISE


1 High let us all our voices raise,
In that heroic woman's praise;
Whose name, with saintly glory bright,
Shines in the starry realms of light.
2 Filled with a pure celestial glow,
She spurned all love of things below;
And heedless here on earth to stay,
Climbed to the skies her toilsome way.
3 O Christ, the strength of all the strong;
To Whom our holiest deeds belong,
Through her prevailing pray'rs on high,
In mercy hear Thy people's cry.
4 To God the Father, and His Son,
Together with the Spirit One,
Let glory from our voice ascend,
From now until all time shall end.
