Flowers Of Martyrdom, All Hail!
For The Holy Innocents
See: The Hymns Of The Holy Innocents
The Feast day of the Holy Innocents, Martyrs, is December 28
1. Flowers of martyrdom, all hail! Smitten by the tyrant foe On life’s threshold – as the gale Strews the roses ere they blow.
2. First to bleed for Christ, sweet lambs! What a simple death ye died! Sporting with your wreath and palms At the very altar-side!
3. Honor, glory, virtue, merit, Be to Thee, O Virgin’s Son, With the Father, and the Spirit While eternal ages run. – Amen.
