I Say unto You, Watch!
226

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 holy 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 honor crowned.
