WATCHMAN WHAT OF THE NIGHT




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


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


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Doubt and terror are withdrawn.


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


Watchman, will its beams alone
Gild the spot that gave them birth?
Traveller, ages are its own;
See, it bursts o’er all the earth.


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