Celebrating the bond between those in heaven — The Church Triumphant — and the living — The Church Militant. On All Saints Day we give thanks to God for the lives and death of all His Saints, famous or obscure, known and unknown.
O blest communion, fellowship devine!
We feebly struggle, they in glory shine.
Yet all are one in Thee for all are Thine,
But lo there breaks a yet more glorious day:
The saints triumphant rise in bright array;
The King of Glory passes on His way.
The golden evening brightens in the west;
Soon, soon to faithful warriors cometh rest.
Sweet in the calm of Paradise the Blest
