Watchmen on the walls of Zion what O




Watchmen on the walls of Zion,
what, O tell us, of the night?
Is the day-star now arising?
Will the morn soon greet our sight?
O’er your vision shine
there now some rays of light?
O’er your vision shine
there now some rays of light?


Tell, O tell us, are the landmarks
on our voyage all passèd by?
Are we nearing now the haven?
Can we e’en the land descry?
Do we truly see
the heavenly kingdom nigh?
Do we truly see
the heavenly kingdom nigh?


Light is beaming, day is coming!
Let us sound aloud the cry;
We behold the day-star rising,
pure and bright in yonder sky!
Saints, be joyful; your redemption
draweth nigh;
Saints, be joyful; your redemption
draweth nigh.


We have found the chart and compass,
and are sure the land is near;
Onward, onward we are hasting;
soon the haven will appear;
Let your voices sound aloud
your holy cheer;
Let your voices sound aloud
your holy cheer.
