The son of consolation

The son of consolation!
Of Levi's priestly line,
filled with the Holy Spirit
and fervent faith divine,
with lowly self-oblation,
for Christ an offering meet,
he laid his early riches
at the Apostles' feet.

The son of consolation!
O name of soothing balm!
It fell on sick and weary
like breath of heaven's own calm!
And the blest son of comfort
with fearless loving hand
the gentiles' great Apostle
let to the faithful band.

The son of consolation!
Draw near unto his Lord,
he won the martyr's glory,
and passed to his reward;
with him is faith now ended,
for ever lost in sight,
but love, made perfect, fills him
with praise, and joy, and light.

The son of consolation!
Lord, hear our humble prayer,
that each of us your children
this blessd name may bear;
that we, sweet comfort shedding
o'er homes of pain and woe,
'midst sickness and in prisons,
may seek you here below.

The sons of consolation!
O what their bliss will be
when Christ the King shall tell them,
"Ye did it unto me!"
The merciful and loving
the Lord of life shall own,
and as his priceless jewels
shall set them round his throne.
