Latin.png Latin text

Viri sancti gloriosum sanguinem fuderunt pro Domino
imitati sunt eum in morte sua
amaverunt Christum in vita sua
et ideo coronans triumphales meruerunt.

Variant 1

Unus spiritus et una fides erat in eis.
Isti sunt qui venerunt ex magna tribulatione
et laverunt stolas suas in sanguine Agni.
Contemnentes aulam regiam pervenerunt ad regna caelestia.

English.png English translation

These were holy men who gloriously shed their blood for the Lord.
They copied Him in their deaths
And loved Him in their lives.
And so, they have merited triumphal crowns.

Variant 1

One spirit, and one faith was in them.
These are they which came out of great tribulation,
and have washed their robes in the blood of the Lamb.
Despising earthly power, they came to the kingdom of heaven.
