Watchman tell us of the night What its




Watchman! tell us if the night;
What its signs of promise are.
Traveller! o’er yon mountain’s height,
See that glory-beaming star!

Watchman! does its beauteous ray
Aught of hope or joy foretell?
Traveller! yes; it brings the day,
Promised day of Israel!

Watchman! yes; it brings the day,
Promised day of Israel!
Watchman/Traveller! yes; it brings the day,
Promised day of Israel!


Watchman! tell us of the night;
Higher yet that star ascends.
Traveller! blessedness and light,
Peace and truth its course portends

Watchman! will its beams alone
Gild the spot that grace them birth?
Traveller! ages are its own:
See! it bursts o’er all the earth.
Watchman! ages are its own:
See! it bursts o’er all the earth.
Watchman/Traveller! ages are its own:
See! it bursts o’er all the earth.


Watchman! tell us of the night;
For the morning seems to dawn.
Traveller! darkness takes its flight,
Doubt and terror are withdrawn

Watchman! let thy wanderings cease;
Hie thee to thy quiet home
Traveller! lo! the Prince of Peace,
Lo! the Son of God is come!

Watchman! lo! the Prince of Peace,
Lo! the Son of God is come!
Watchman/Traveller! lo! the Prince of Peace,
Lo! the Son of God is come!
