You servants of the Lord

You servants of the Lord,
who for his coming wait,
observe with care his heavenly word-
be watchful at his gate.

2. Let all your lamps be bright
and guard the living flame;
be ready always in his sight,
for holy is his name.

3. Watch! this is Christ’s command:
the bridegroom shall appear,
for his returning is at hand,
and while we speak he’s near.

4. O happy servants they
who wide awake are found
to greet their master on that day,
and be with honour crowned!

5. Christ shall the banquet spread
with his own royal hand,
and raise each faithful servant’s head,
where hosts of angels stand.
