“Flowers of martyrdom, all hail! Smitten by the tyrant foe On life’s threshold, as the gale Strews the roses ere they blow.
First to die for Christ, sweet lambs! What a simple death ye died! Playing with your wreaths and palms, At the very altar side.”
Under The Throne of God, all the Saints cry!
Hymn (First tone) Prudentius (d.419) From the Mass of the Holy Innocents St. Andrew Daily Missal
