SS&S 175 Behold, the Bridegroom cometh in

SS&S 175   Behold, the Bridegroom cometh in

1. Behold, the Bridegroom cometh in

the middle of the night,

And blest is he whose loins are girt,

whose lamp is burning bright;

But woe to that dull servant whom

the Master shall surprise

With lamp untrimmed, unburning,

and with slumber in his eyes.


2 Do thou, my soul, keep watch, beware

lest thou in sleep sink down,

Lest thou be given o'er to death, and

lose the golden crown;

But see that thou art sober, with a

watchful eye, and thus

Cry, "Holy, Holy, Holy God, have

mercy upon us."


3 That day, the day of fear, shall come;

my soul, slack not thy toil,

But light thy lamp, and feed it well,

and make it bright with oil;

Thou knowest not how soon may

sound the cry at eventide:"

Behold the Bridegroom comes !

Arise, go forth to meet the

Bride !"


4 Beware, my soul ! take thou good

heed lest thou in slumber lie,

And, like the five, remain without,

and knock, and vainly cry;

But watch, and bear thy lamp un-

dimmed, and Christ shall gird thee on

His own bright wedding-robe of

light—the glory of the Son.
