A bit less formal than the familiar text of this title, this John Bell text honors and gives thanks for all the faithful who have gone before us. Moore's folklike tune is scored for unison, 2- and 3-part voice over piano (optional guitar and bass), and cleverly quotes sine nomine (“For all the saints”) as a descant over the final stanza.
