1 When the Bridegroom calleth from the skies—
For His jewels white and fair;
At the blissful crowning of the wise,
Who will be invited there?

All the wise will be invited,
When He calleth to the crowning;
All the wise will be invited,
To the feast of the Lamb.

2 When the Bridegroom calleth for His bride,
And the pure His palace throng;
There while countless ages sweetly glide,
She will sing redemption’s song. [Refrain]

3 When the Bridegroom calleth from their toil,
All who hold His name most dear;
Who with care have filled their lamps with oil,
And await His coming near. [Refrain]

4 When the Bridegroom calleth from repose,
Those who rest from holy strife;
When rewards for service He bestows,
Who will wear a crown of life? [Refrain]

5 When the Bridegroom sounds the final call,
And the scroll shall be unrolled,
When the victors cross the jasper sea,
Who will tread the streets of gold? [Refrain]
