1 Let us keep steadfast guard
With lighted hearts all night,
That when Christ comes, we stand prepared,
And meet him with delight.
2 At midnight's season chill
Lay Paul and Silas bound,
Bound and in prison, sang they still,
And singing, freedom found.
3 Our prison is this earth,
And yet we sing to thee:
Break sin's strong fetters, lead us forth,
Set us, believing, free!Source: The Seventh-Day Adventist Hymn and Tune Book: for use in divine worship #813
