1 The Bridegroom comes! Bride of the Lamb, awake!
The midnight cry is heard; Thy sleep forsake.
The marriage day has come; lift up thy head!
Put on thy bridal robe, the feast is spread.

2 Shake off earth’s dust, and wash thy weary feet,
Arise, make haste, go forth, the Bridegroom greet.
Sing the new song! Thy triumph has begun;
Thy tears are wiped away, Thy night is done!

Horatius Bonar was born at Edinburgh, in 1808. His education was obtained at the High School, and the University of his native city. He was ordained to the ministry, in 1837, and since then has been pastor at Kelso. In 1843, he joined the Free Church of Scotland. His reputation as a religious writer was first gained on the publication of the "Kelso Tracts," of which he was the author. He has also written many other prose works, some of which have had a very large circulation. Nor is he less favorably known as a religious poet and hymn-writer. The three series of "Hymns of Faith and Hope," have passed through several editions. --Annotations of the Hymnal, Charles Hutchins, M.A. 1872… Go to person page >
