Representative Text

1 Jesus is coming again, they say,
Coming to end our sorrow;
Coming again some glorious day,
Coming, perhaps tomorrow.

What are you doing, my brother, I pray?
What are you doing His coming to bring?
What are you doing from day to day,
To hasten the coming of the King?

2 Have you been robed in the raiment white,
And are your lights all burning,
Oil in your lamps, and all things right,
Ready for His returning? [Refrain]

3 Have you been watching while others slept,
Faithful tho’ faint and weary?
Have you been seeking the other sheep,
Out on the mountains dreary? [Refrain]

4 Have you been sending abroad the light,
Telling the old, old story,
Hasting to bring with all your might,
Christ and His coming kingdom? [Refrain]
