    Verse 1
    King of Saints, to whom the number
    Of Thy starry host is known,
    Many a name, by man forgotten,
    Lives forever round Thy throne

    Verse 2
    Lights, which earth-born mists have darkened
    There are shining full and clear
    Princes in the courts of Heaven,
    Nameless, unremembered here

    Verse 3
    How they toiled for Thee and suffered
    None on earth can now record;
    All their saintly saintly life is hidden
    In the knowledge of their Lord.

    Verse 4
    All is veiled from us, but written
    In the Lamb's great book of life,
    All the faith, and prayer, and patience,
    All the toiling, and the strife.

    Verse 5
    There are told Thy hidden treasures,
    Number us, O Lord, with them,
    When Thou makest up the jewels
    Of Thy living diadem.
