Hymn/Song Information

He whose confession God of old




He, whose confession
God of old accepted,
Whom through the ages
all now hold in honor,
Gaining his guerdon
this day came to enter
Heaven’s high portal.


God-fearing, watchful,
pure of mind and body,
Holy and humble,
thus did all men find him,
While, through his members,
to the life immortal
Mortal life called him.


Thus to the weary,
from the life enshrinèd,
Potent in virtue,
flowed humane compassion;
Sick and sore laden,
howsoever burdened,
There they found healing.


So now in chorus,
giving God the glory,
Raise we our anthem
gladly to his honor,
That in fair kinship
we may all be sharers
Here and hereafter.


Honor and glory,
power and salvation,
Be in the highest
unto Him Who reigneth
Changeless in Heaven
over earthly changes
Triune, eternal.
