Rejoice, rejoice, believers, and let your lights appear.
The evening is advancing, and darker night is near.
The Bridegroom is arising, and soon He will draw nigh.
All watch in expectation! At midnight comes the cry.
See that your lamps are burning; replenish them with oil.
Look now for your salvation, the end of earthly toil.
The marriage feast is waiting, and now the gates wide open stand;
Rise up, ye heirs of glory, the Bridegroom is at hand!
'Mid hope and expectation, O Jesus, now appear!
Arise, Thou Sun so longed for, above this darker sphere!
With hearts and hands uplifted, we plead, O Lord, to see
The day of all the earth’s redemption and ever be with Thee.
Forever be with Thee!
