Hymn/Song Information

King of saints we offer highest praise




King of saints, we offer
highest praise to thee,
who didst free thy servants
from captivity;
sending thine apostles
to convey thy grace
unto every nation
and to every race.


Two of thine apostles
we remember now,
whom thou didst so freely
with thy grace endow.
Thou unto Saint Philip
hast thyself revealed,
one with God the Father
though in flesh concealed.


O how can we thank thee
for the light conferred
by Saint James thy servant,
in his faithful word.
Like these two apostles
faithful unto death,
may we love and serve thee
till our latest breath.


Make us dear Redeemer,
more and more like thee,
be the Way to lead us
o'er life's dark sea;
be the Truth to light us
to our home on high;
be the Life within us
that can never die.
