Watch Ye Saints With Eyelids Waking

Watch, ye saints, with eyelids waking;
Lo! the powers of heav’n are shaking;
Keep your lamps all trimm’d and burning,
Ready for your Lord’s returning.

Lo! he comes, lo! Jesus comes;
Lo! he comes, he comes, all glorious!
Jesus comes to reign victorious,
Lo! he, comes, yes, Jesus comes.

Lo! the promise of your Saviour,
Pardoned sin and purchased favor,
Blood-wash’d robes and crowns of glory;
Haste to tell redemption’s story. [Refrain]

Kingdoms at their base are crumbling,
Hark! his chariot wheels are rumbling;
Tell, O tell of grace abounding,
Whilst the seventh trump is sounding. [Refrain]

Nations wane, tho’ proud and stately;
Christ his kingdom hasteneth greatly;
Earth her latest pangs is summing;
Shout, ye saints, your Lord is coming. [Refrain]

Sinners, come, while Christ is pleading;
Now for you he’s interceding;
Haste, ere grace and time diminished
Shall proclaim the mystery finished. [Refrain]
