HOPE'S CONSUMMATION




Bride of the Lamb, awake, awake!
Why sleep for sorrow now?
The hope of glory, Christ, is thine,
|: A child of glory thou. :|


Thy spirit, through the lonely night,
From earthly joy apart,
Hath sighed for One that’s far away—
|: The Bridegroom of thy heart. :|


But see! the night is waning fast,
The breaking morn is near;
And Jesus comes, with voice of love,
|: Thy drooping heart to cheer. :|


He comes—for oh,
His yearning heart
No more can bear delay—
To scenes of full unmingled joy
|: To call His bride away. :|


Thou too shalt reign;
He will not wear
His crown of joy alone;
And earth His royal bride shall see
|: Beside Him on the throne. :|


Then weep no more;
’tis all thine own
His crown, His joy divine;
And, sweeter far than all beside,
|: He, He Himself is thine! :|


This earth, the scene of all his woe,
A homeless wild to thee,
Full soon upon his heav'nly throne
|: Its rightful King shall see. :|


His own kind hand
shall wipe the tears
From ev'ry weeping eye,
And pains, and groans,
and griefs, and fears,
|: And death itself, shall die. :|
