WATCH YE THEREFORE




Ye servants of the Lord,
Each in his office wait,
Observant of His heavenly Word,
And watchful at His gate.


Let all your lamps be bright,
And trim the golden flame,
Gird up your loins, as in His sight,
For awful is His Name.


Watch: ’tis your Lord’s command,
And while we speak He’s near;
Mark the first signal of His hand,
And ready all appear.


O happy servant he,
In such a posture found!
He shall His Lord with rapture see,
And be with honour crowned.


Christ shall the banquet spread
With His own royal hand,
And raise that faithful servant’s head
Amid the angelic band.


All glory, Lord, to Thee,
Whom Heaven and earth adore,
To Father, Son, and Holy Ghost,
One God for evermore.


---Alternative verses---


Ye servants of the Lord,
Each of your Master wait,
Observant of His heavenly Word,
And watchful at His gate.


Christ shall the banquet spread,
With his own bounteous hand,
And raise that favourite servant’s head
Amidst th’angelic band.
