     1 Then shall the kingdom of heaven be likened unto ten virgins, which took their lamps, and went forth to meet the bridegroom. 2 And five of them were wise, and five were foolish. 3 They that were foolish took their lamps, and took no oil with them: 4 But the wise took oil in their vessels with their lamps. 5 While the bridegroom tarried, they all slumbered and slept. 6 And at midnight there was a cry made, Behold, the bridegroom cometh; go ye out to meet him. 7 Then all those virgins arose, and trimmed their lamps. 8 And the foolish said unto the wise, Give us of your oil; for our lamps are gone out. 9 But the wise answered, saying, Not so; lest there be not enough for us and you: but go ye rather to them that sell, and buy for yourselves. 10 And while they went to buy, the bridegroom came; and they that were ready went in with him to the marriage: and the door was shut. 11 Afterward came also the other virgins, saying, Lord, Lord, open to us. 12 But he answered and said, Verily I say unto you, I know you not. 13 Watch therefore, for ye know neither the day nor the hour wherein the Son of man cometh.(KJV)

1. The Bridegroom soon will call us: 
Come, all ye wedding-guests! 
May not His voice appal us 
While slumber binds our breasts! 
May all our lamps be burning 
And oil be found in store 
That we, with Him returning, 
May open find the door! 

2. There shall we see delighted 
Our dear Redeemer’s face, 
Who leads our souls benighted 
To glory by His grace. 
The patriarchs shall meet us, 
The prophets’ holy band, 
Apostles, martyrs, greet us 
In that celestial land. 

3. They will not blush to own us 
As brothers, sisters dear; 
Love ever will be shown us 
When we with them appear. 
We all shall come before Him 
Who for us man became, 
As Lord and God adore Him, 
And ever bless His name. 

4. Our Father, rich in blessing, 
Will give us crowns of gold 
And, to His bosom pressing, 
Impart a bliss untold, 
Will welcome with embraces 
Of never-ending love, 
And deck us with His graces 
In blissful realms above. 

5. In yonder home shall never 
Be silent music’s voice; 
With hearts and lips forever 
We shall in God rejoice. 
The angels shall adore Him, 
All saints shall sing His praise 
And bring with joy before Him 
Their sweetest heavenly lays. 

6. In mansions fair and spacious 
Will God the feast prepare 
And, ever kind and gracious, 
Bid us its riches share. 
There bliss that knows no measure 
From springs of love shall flow, 
And never-changing pleasure 
His bounty will bestow. 

7. Thus God shall from all evil 
Forever make us free, 
From sin and from the devil, 
From all adversity, 
From sickness, pain, and sadness, 
From troubles, cares, and fears, 
And grant us heavenly gladness 
And wipe away our tears.
