Famous quotes containing the word saints:

    Up the Rebels, To Hell with the Pope,
    And God Save—as you prefer—the King or Ireland.
    The land of scholars and saints:
    Scholars and saints my eye, the land of ambush,
    Purblind manifestoes, never-ending complaints,
    Louis MacNeice (1907–1963)

    For all the saints who from their labors rest,
    Who, to the world their steadfast faith confessed,
    your name, O Jesus, be forever blessed
    Alleluia!
    William Walsham How (1823–1897)

    Let the saints be joyful in glory: let them sing aloud upon their beds. Let the high praises of God be in their mouth, and a two-edged sword in their hand; to execute vengeance upon the heathen, and punishments upon the people; to bind their kings with chains and their nobles with fetters of iron; to execute upon them the judgment written.
    Bible: Hebrew Psalms 149:5-9.
