1 Is there oil in your lamp,
Is it trimmed and burning,
Do you list for the tramp
Of the Bridegroom returning?
Is there zeal in your heart
For the work you are doing,
Have you faith in the part
You are daily pursuing?

Refrain:
Is there oil in your lamp?
Do you wait your coming Lord?

2 Is there oil in your lamp,
Do you wait for the Master
While the night dews so damp
Gather faster and faster?
Do you joy ‘mid the gloom
And the sins that’s around you,
Do you think of your doom
E’er the Savior had found you? [Refrain]

3 Is there oil in your lamp,
Are you sure it is ready,
Do you march from the camp
With a step firm and steady?
Are your purposes true,
Are you ready for the battle,
Is there vict’ry for you,
Will you die like the cattle? [Refrain]
