A glorious band the chosen few On whom




A glorious band, the chosen few
On whom the Spirit came;
Twelve valiant saints, their hope they knew,
And mock'd the cross and flame.


They met the tyrant's brandish'd steel,
The lion's gory mane;
They bow'd their necks the death to feel!
Who follows in their train?


A noble army men and boys,
The matron and the maid,
Around the Saviour's throne rejoice,
In robes of light array'd.


They clim'b the steep ascent of Heaven,
Through peril, toil, and pain!
Oh God! to us may grace be given
To follow in their train!
