St. Stephen the Martyr

Hear, O Israel, Yahweh,
The LORD our God, has won.
Witness, Stephen, witness,
Of what the Christ has done.
As stiff-necked mobs menace,
As stones of vengeance fly,
The Son of Man in glory
Awaits you in the sky.

Heavenly Father, grant us grace that in our sufferings for the sake of Christ we may follow the example of Saint Stephen, that we may look to him who suffered and was crucified on our behalf and pray for those who do us wrong; through our Lord Jesus Christ, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever. (Lutheran Worship, 116).
