1 Whilst the careless world is sleeping,
Blest the servants who are keeping
Watch, according to His Word,
For the coming of their Lord.
2 At His table He will place them,
With His royal banquet grace them,
Banquet that will never cloy,
Bread of life and wine of joy.
3 Heard ye not your master’s warning?
He will come before the morning,
Watch ye for Him open-eyed.
4 Teach us so to watch, Lord Jesus;
From the sleep of sin release us:
Swift to hear Thee let us be,
Meet to enter in with Thee.
5 God who with all good provides us,
God who made, who saved, who guides us,
Praise we with the heavenly host,
Father, Son, and Holy Ghost.
