1002. Pray, Brethren, Pray!

1 Pray, brethren, pray!
The sands are falling;
Pray, brethren, pray!
God’s voice is calling.
Yon turret strikes the dying chime;
We kneel upon the verge of time:

Refrain:
Eternity is drawing nigh!
Eternity is drawing nigh!

2 Praise, brethren, praise!
The skies are rending;
Praise, brethren, praise!
The fight is ending.
Behold, the glory draweth near,
The King Himself will soon appear: [Refrain]

3 Watch, brethren, watch!
The years are dying;
Watch, brethren, watch!
Old time is flying.
Watch as men watch the parting breath,
Watch as men watch for life or death: [Refrain]

4 Look, brethren, look!
The day is breaking;
Hark, brethren, hark!
The dead are waking.
With girded loins all ready stand,
Behold, the Bridegroom is at hand: [Refrain]
