Hymn for the Holy Souls (by John Henry Cardinal Newman in 1857)
Those holy souls, they suffer on, Resigned in heart and will, Until Thy high behest is done, And justice has its fill.
For daily falls, for pardoned crime, They joy to undergo The shadow of Thy cross sublime, The remnant of Thy woe.
Help, Lord, the souls which Thou hast made, The souls to Thee so dear, In prison for the debt unpaid Of sins committed here.
Oh, by their patience of delay, Their hope amid their pain, Their sacred zeal to burn away Disfigurement and stain;
Oh, by their fire of love, not less In keenness than the flame, Oh, by their very helplessness, Oh, by Thy own great Name,
Good Jesus, help! sweet Jesus, aid The souls to Thee most dear, In prison for the debt unpaid Of sins committed here.
