1 Ye servants of the Lord,
Each in your office wait,
Observant of His heavenly word,
And watchful at His gate.
2 Let all your lamps be bright,
And trim the golden flame;
Gird up your loins, as in His sight,
For awful is His Name.
3 Watch!'tis your Lord's command,
And while we speak, He's near;
Mark the first signal of His hand,
And ready all appear.
4 Oh, happy servant he
In such a posture found!
He shall his Lord with rapture see,
And be with honor crowned.
