How could they give all? How could they lay it down?
Was it for crimes that they had done ~~~ or was it for a crown?
How could they die, so firm and sure ~~~ without a shade of doubt?
Was it for show or spectacle? Was their faith that stout?
How could they stand ~~~ enduring flame? How could they face the sword?
Were they unfeeling, so reserved? Were they not from this world?
If we but seek to truly know ~~~ If we can see and hear
The Savior, as He died for us ~~~Is there anything we cannot bear?
(In praise to God, our Father; and in memory of those who died that we might have the Word of God, His truth, and the great salvation given through Jesus Christ, our Lord.)
