Christ My Song - 1211

Awake, ye saints, awake and watch
(Thomas Kelly/Johannes Thomas Rüegg)

Awake, ye saints, awake and watch.

"And what I say unto you, I say unto all – watch."
(Mark 13, 37)

1. Awake, ye saints, awake and watch,
  the bridegroom may be near;
how awful, should the summons catch
  his people slumb'ring here!

2. They who are ready to attend
  the Lord when he appears,
with him to glory shall ascend;
  eternal life is theirs.

3. With him they shall sit down, and feast
  on heav'n's unbounded store;
enjoy an everlasting rest,
  and never hunger more.

4. When once the chamber door shall close,
  be sure beyond a doubt,
no further hope remains for those
  who then are found without.

5. Awake, and be ye like to those
  who wait their Lord's return;
awake, nor yield to that repose,
  whose end it is to mourn.

Thomas Kelly, Hymns on various passages of Scripture, ca. 1853, Hymn 56.
