Heir of the kingdom O why dost thou




Heir of the kingdom,
O why dost thou slumber?
Why art thou sleeping
so near thy blest home?
Wake thee, arouse thee,
and gird on thine armor,
Speed, for the moments
are hurrying on.


Heir of the kingdom,
say, why dost thou linger?
How canst thou tarry
in sight of the prize?
Up, and adorn thee,
the Savior is coming;
Haste to receive Him
descending the skies.


Earth’s mighty nations,
in strife and commotion,
Tremble with terror,
and sink in dismay;
Listen, ’tis naught
but the chariot’s loud rumbling;
Heir of the kingdom,
no longer delay.


Stay not, O stay not,
for earth’s vain allurements!
See how its glory is passing away;
Break the strong fetters
the foe hath bound o’er thee;
Heir of the kingdom,
turn, turn thee away.


Keep the eye single,
the head upward lifted;
Watch for the glory
of earth’s coming King;
Lo! o’er the mountain tops
light is now breaking;
Heirs of the kingdom,
rejoice ye and sing.
