598 – Watch, Ye Saints

 

1
Watch, ye saints, with eyelids waking;
Lo! The powers of heaven are shaking;
Keep your lamps all trimmed an burning,
Ready for your Lord’s returning.

  • Refrain
    Lo! He comes, lo! Jesus comes;
    Lo! He come, He comes all glorious!
    Jesus comes to reign victorious,
    Lo! He comes, yes, Jesus comes.

2
Lo! the promise of your Savior,
Pardoned sin and purchased favor,
Blood-washed robes and crowns of glory;
Haste to tell redemption’s story.

3
Kingdoms at their base are crumbling,
Hark! His chariot wheels are rumbling;
Tell, O tell of grace abounding,
While the seventh trump is sounding.
