 This month's tab is an arrangement of the processional hymn "For All The Saints".  The lyrics were written in 1864 by William Walsham How while he was serving as the Anglican Bishop of Wakefield in West Yorkshire, England.  He was fond of writing parts of his weekly sermons in verse, several of which were later set to music and published as hymns, including "We Give Thee But Thine Own", "O Jesus Thou Art Standing", and "O Word of God Incarnate", but "For All The Saints" remains by far and away his most famous hymn.  How wrote the text as part of a sermon he was preparing for his "All Saints Day" message, which was traditionally celebrated on the first Sunday in November to honor "all saints, known and unknown".  Also known as "All Hallows' Day", it began with evening vespers on "Hallows' Eve".  In most congregations, the festival is marked as an occasion to remember those who have died from the local congregation over the past year.   The festival is ultimately a celebration of Christ's victory over death. 

Originally, the hymn was set to the hymn tune "Sarum", composed by the Victorian composer Joseph Barnby.  However, in 1906, English composer Ralph Vaughan Williams composed a new tune for it called "Sine Nomine".  He uses a stirring bass line to enhance the tune's use as a processional.

Here is a link to a YouTube video of the hymn performed by the Cardiff Festival Choir.

This is a 2-part arrangement, including the melody and the bass line, so find a playing partner and enjoy!

In music and friendship,

--Tull

 

Lyrics

1. For all the saints who from their labors rest,
Who Thee by faith before the world confess,
Thy name, O Jesus, be forever blest,
Alleluia! Alleluia!

2. Thou wast their Rock, their Fortress, and their Might;
Thou, Lord, their Captain in the well-fought fight;
Thou, in the darkness drear, their one true Light.
Alleluia! Alleluia!

3. Oh, may Thy soldiers, faithful, true and bold,
Fight as the saints who nobly fought of old
And win with them the victor's crown of gold.
Alleluia! Alleluia!

4. O blest communion, fellowship divine,
We feebly struggle, they in glory shine;
Yet all are one in Thee, for all are Thine.
Alleluia! Alleluia!

5. And when the fight is fierce, the warfare long,
Steals on the ear the distant triumph song,
And hearts are brave again, and arms are strong.
Alleluia! Alleluia!

6. But, lo, there breaks a yet more glorious day;
The saints triumphant rise in bright array;
The King of Glory passes on His way.
Alleluia! Alleluia!

7. From earth's wide bounds, from ocean's farthest coast,
Through gates of pearl streams in the countless host,
Singing to Father, Son, and Holy Ghost,
Alleluia! Alleluia!

8. The golden evening brightens in the west;
Soon, soon, to faithful warriors cometh rest.
Sweet is the calm of Paradise the blest.
Alleluia! Alleluia!
