Will Your Lamp Be Trimmed


Will your lamp be trimmed and burning,
When the Bridegroom comes?
Or your plea will he be spurning,
When he comes?
When they cry, “Go forth to meet him,”
Will you be prepared to greet him?
Will your lamp be trimmed and burning,
When the Bridegroom comes?

Refrain:
When the Bridegroom comes will you be ready?
When the Bridegroom comes will you be ready?
When they cry, “Go forth to meet him,”
Will you be prepared to greet him?
Will your lamp be trimmed and burning,
When the Bridegroom comes?

Will your light be bright and steady,
When the Bridegroom comes?
Will your heart and soul be ready,
When he comes?
Will your lamp be brightly flaming,
Your devotion wide proclaiming?
Will your light be bright and steady,
When the Bridegroom comes? [Refrain]

Will you enter his pavilions,
When the Bridegroom comes?
Join adoring countless millions,
When he comes?
Ere the door is shut securely,
Will you enter with him surely?
Will you enter his pavilions,
When the Bridegroom comes? [Refrain]
