HYMN 583

H.C 68 S.M (FE 609)
“Let your loins be girded about and
your lamps buring" - Luke 12:35

1.  YE servant of the Lord, 

     Each in his office wait

     Observant of His heav’nly 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 honour crown’d.

5.  Christ shall the banquet spread

     With His own royal hand

     And raise that faithful servant‘s head 

     Amid (the) angelic band.  Amen
