                          Verse 3 of the hymn We Are God's Work of Art nicely emphasizes the theme of All Saints Day:   
                   
                                                   We are strangers no longer, we are outcasts no longer,                 
                                                               We are saints in the house of God.

The Latin poem Stabat Mater Dolorosa is a fine example of religious lyric in the Franciscan tradition.       
The poem is attributed to Jacopone da Todi, a Franciscan friar (1230-1306).   
Many composers have set Stabat Mater to music.
