1. Let us remember
    That morn and even,
Brought by December,
    The Feast of Stephen,
Whom in mad fury
Doctors of Jewry
    Stoned without pity
    Outside the City,
    Stoned without pity
    Outside the City.

2. Martyr victorious,
    The palm who bearest,
Deacon all-glorious,
    The crown who wearest,
Pray that a garland,
Woven in star-land,
    Evergreen flowers
    May once be ours.
    Evergreen flowers
    May once be ours.
