OUR LORD JESUS CHRIST
213
2 See that your lamps are burning;
Replenish them with oil; Look now for your salvation,
The end of sin and toil. The watchers on the mountain
Proclaim the Bridegroom near, Go meet Him as He cometh,
With alleluias clear.
3 O wise and holy virgins,
Now raise your voices higher, Until in songs of triumph
Ye meet the angel choir. The marriage-feast is waiting,
The gates wide open stand; Up, up, ye heirs of glory!
The Bridegroom is at hand.
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,
And ever be with Thee!
L. Laurekti, 1700. Tr. by Sarah B. Findlater, 1854
