Play music

1 Ye saints in Christ,his brethren ,
Let faith cast out your fear:
The dark night is departing;
The morning light is near:
The Bridegroom is arising,
And soon he draweth nigh;
Up!pray,and watch, and wrestle;
At midnight comes the cry!
2 See that your lamps are burning,
Replenish them with oil;
And work out your salvationĀ­ T
he end of all your toil.
The watchers in the mountain
Proclaim the Bridegroom near;
Go meet him, as he cometh,
With joy and not with fear.
3 Ye saints,who here in patience
Your tribulations bear,
Shall live and reign for ever,
And Christ's own kingdom share.
Around the throne of glory
The Lamb ye shall behold;
In triumph sing before him
Your praise with saints of old.
4 Our hope and expectation ,
O Jesus!now appear!
Arise,thou Sun, so longed for,
O'er this benighted sphere!
With hearts and hands uplifted,
We plead, O Lord, to see
The day of earth's redemption
That brings us unto thee!
