US Hymn 232 for St Luke’s Day (tune: AMNS 170 ii)

 

By all your saints still striving

For all your saints at rest,

Your holy name, O Jesus,

For evermore be blest!

You rose, our King victorious,

That they might wear the crown

And ever shine in splendor

Reflected from your throne.

 

For Luke, beloved physician,

All praise, whose Gospel shows

The healer of the nations,

The one who shares our woes.

Your wine and oil, O Savior,

Upon our spirits pour,

And with true balm of Gilead

Anoint us evermore.

 

Then let us praise the Father

And worship God the Son

And sing to God the Spirit,

Eternal Three in One,

Till all the ransomed number

Who stand before the throne,

Ascribe all power and glory

And praise to God alone.
