Hymn/Song Information

First of martyrs thou whose name Doth




First of martyrs, thou whose name
Doth thy golden crown proclaim,
Not of flowers that fade away
Weave we this thy crown today.


Bright the stones
which bruise thee gleam
Sprinkled with thy life bloodís stream;
Stars around thy sainted head
Never could such radiance shed.


Every wound upon thy brow
Sparkles with unearthly glow;
Like an angelís is thy face
Beaming with celestial grace.


Oh, how blessŤd first to be
Slain for Him Who bled for thee;
First like Him in dying hour
Witness to almighty power.


First to follow where He trod
Through the deep
Red Sea of blood;
First, but in thy footsteps press
Saints and martyrs numberless.


Glory to the Father be,
Glory, Virgin Born, to Thee,
Glory to the Holy Ghost,
Praised by men
and heavenly host.
