All Saints Day

Excerpts from various liturgies for All Saints Day:
Let us all rejoice in the Lord, celebrating a festival day in honor of all the Saints: at whose solemnity the Angels rejoice, and give praise to the Son of God...

I beheld a great multitude which no man could number, of all nations, standing before the throne...

Thou hast redeemed us to God by thy blood out of every kindred and tongue and people and nation, and hast made us unto our God kings and priests...

You have drawn near to Mount Zion and the city of the living God, the heavenly Jerusalem...

The glorious company of apostles praises you, the noble fellowship of prophets praises you, the white-robed army of martyrs praises you, all the saints together sing your glory, O Holy Trinity, one God...

Blessed are the pure in heart, for they shall see God...
