We give thanks for Andrew Dung-Lac,
Faithful priest, and for his friends,
Raised by God to preach and nurture
Vietnam to Christian ends.
When the days of persecution
Overtook the Church, they stood
Firm in faith against oppression,
Boasting in the cross’s good.
Father, Son, and Holy Spirit,
Three-in-One, our God and Lord,
From your church, with all your martyrs,
You are worshiped and adored.
