456. Ye servants of the Lord


St. George (Gauntlett):

Henry J. Gauntlett, 1848

Philip Doddridge, 1755

Ye servants of the Lord,

Each in your office, wait,

Observant of his heavenly word,

And watchful at his gate.

Let all your lamps be bright,

And trim the golden flame;

Gird up your loins as in his sight,

For awful is his Name.

Watch! 'tis your Lord's command,

And while we speak he's near;

Mark the first signal of his hand,

And ready all appear.

O happy servant he

In such a posture found;

He shall his Lord with rapture see,

And be with honour crowned.
