Ye who rose to meet the Lord

Ye who rose to meet the Lord

Representative Text

1 Ye who rose to meet the Lord,
Ventured on his faithful word,
Faint not now, for your reward
Will be quickly given.
Faint not, always watch and pray;
Jesus will no more delay;
Even now 'tis dawn of day;
Day-star beams from heaven.

2 Would ye to the end endure?
Keep the wedding garment pure,
Claim ye still the promise sure,
Faithful is the Lord!
Let your lamps be burning bright;
In God's word is beaming light;
Live by faith, and not by sight
Crowns are your reward.

3 Mid the darts of angry foe,
Onward, fearless, onward go,
The good soldier's courage show,
On to victory!
Let thine eyes be turned to me,
Jesus says, "I'll rescue thee;
Overcome, and faithful be,
Thou shalt glory see!"

4 Tones of thunder through the sky,
Angel voices sounding high,
Echo still the mighty cry,
"Jesus, quickly come!"
Quickly he'll return again,
With his saints he'll come to reign,
While all heaven will shout, "Amen!
Welcome to thy throne!"

5 Marriage supper now prepared,
By the guests will then be shared,
In fair, righteous robes arrayed,
Like the Bridegroom King.
Glory to Jehovah's name!
Sound aloud the glad acclaim,
To the Lamb that once was slain,
Alleluias bring!
