1 Our Jesus says that he will come
To gather home his own,
And at the supper of the Lamb
We shall with him sit down.

Refrain:
Then we’ll watch for the Bridegroom,
Watch, watch, watch,
Then we’ll watch for the Bridegroom,
And with him enter in.

2 That this may be our happy lot,
Let us be on our guard,
Or else he’ll say, “I know you not,”
When once the door is barred. [Refrain]

3 The foolish ones, with lamps gone out,
Too late their oil would buy,
For, lo, at midnight comes the shout,
Behold! the Bridegroom’s nigh. [Refrain]

4 Oh, when we hear the Bridegroom’s cry,
At morning or at night,
May all our hopes on Christ rely,
And all our lamps be bright. [Refrain]

5 And when we join the blood-washed throng,
And sing the song divine,
This strain shall burst from every tongue,
The glory, Lord, be thine. [Refrain]
