1. Trim thy lamp and keep it burning,
With a clear and steady ray;
It may cheer a weary pilgrim,
That perchance has lost his way.

Refrain
Trim thy lamp, and keep it burning,
Till our blessèd Lord appear;
Keep it trimmed and shining brightly,
For His coming draweth near.

2. Never waning, ever shining,
Day and night thy lamp must be,
Lest a brother’s feet should stumble,
And his fall be charged to thee. [Refrain]

3. Trim thy lamp and keep it burning
With the flame of sacred love,
Pointing ever to the mansions
Of eternal rest above. [Refrain]
