    Verse 1
    Rejoice, all ye believers,
    And let your lights appear;
    The evening is advancing,
    And darker night is near;
    The Bridegroom is arising,
    And soon He draweth nigh:
    Up, pray, and watch, and wrestle:
    At midnight comes the cry.

    Verse 2
    See that your lamps are burning;
    Replenish them with oil,
    And wait for your salvation,
    The end of earthly toil.
    The watchers on the mountain
    Proclaim the Bridegroom near;
    Go, meet Him as He cometh,
    With Hallelujahs clear.

    Verse 3
    Ye wise and holy virgins,
    Now raise your voices higher,
    Until in songs triumphant
    They 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!

    Verse 4
    Ye saints, who here in patience
    Your cross and sufferings bore,
    Shall live and reign forever,
    When sorrow is no more.
    Around the throne of glory
    The LAMB ye shall behold;
    In triumph cast before Him
    Your diadems of gold!
