We Know Not The Hour Of The Masters Appe

We know not the hour of the Master’s appearing,
Yet signs all foretell that the moment is nearing
When He shall return-’tis a promise most cheering-
But we know not the hour.

He will come, let us watch and be ready;
He will come, hallelujah! hallelujah!
He will come in the clouds of His Father’s bright glory-
But we know not the hour.

There’s light for the wise who are seeking salvation,
There’s truth in the Book of divine revelation-
Each prophecy points to the great consummation-
But we know not the hour. [Refrain]

We’ll watch and we’ll pray, with our lamps trimmed and burning,
We’ll work and we’ll wait till the Master’s returning,
We’ll sing and rejoice, every omen discerning-
But we know not the hour. [Refrain]
