Hymn/Song Information

O valiant hearts who to your glory came




O valiant hearts who
to your glory came
Through dust of conflict
and through battle flame;
Tranquil you lie,
your knightly virtue proved,
Your memory hallowed
in the land you loved.


Proudly you gathered,
rank on rank, to war
As who had heard God’s
message from afar;
All you had hoped for,
all you had, you gave,
To save mankind—
yourselves you scorned to save.


Splendid you passed,
the great surrender made;
Into the light that
nevermore shall fade;
Deep your contentment
in that blest abode,
Who wait the last clear
trumpet call of God.


Long years ago,
as earth lay dark and still,
Rose a loud cry
upon a lonely hill,
While in the frailty
of our human clay,
Christ, our Redeemer,
passed the self same way.


Still stands His Cross
from that dread hour to this,
Like some bright star
above the dark abyss;
Still, through the veil,
the Victor’s pitying eyes
Look down to bless
our lesser Calvaries.


These were His servants,
in His steps they trod,
Following through death
the martyred Son of God:
Victor, He rose;
victorious too shall rise
They who have drunk
His cup of sacrifice.


O risen Lord,
O Shepherd of our dead,
Whose cross has bought them
and Whose staff has led,
In glorious hope their proud
and sorrowing land
Commits her children
to Thy gracious hand.
