11 For thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, I, even I, will both search my sheep, and seek them out. 12 As a shepherd seeketh out his flock in the day that he is among his sheep that are scattered; so will I seek out my sheep, and will deliver them out of all places where they have been scattered in the cloudy and dark day. 13 And I will bring them out from the people, and gather them from the countries, and will bring them to their own land, and feed them upon the mountains of Israel by the rivers, and in all the inhabited places of the country. 14 I will feed them in a good pasture, and upon the high mountains of Israel shall their fold be: there shall they lie in a good fold, and in a fat pasture shall they feed upon the mountains of Israel. 15 I will feed my flock, and I will cause them to lie down, saith the Lord GOD. 16 I will seek that which was lost, and bring again that which was driven away, and will bind up that which was broken, and will strengthen that which was sick: but I will destroy the fat and the strong; I will feed them with judgment.(KJV)

1. Rejoice, rejoice, believers, 
And let your lights appear! 
The evening is advancing, 
And darker night is near. 
The Bridegroom is arising, 
And soon He draweth nigh; 
Up, pray and watch and wrestle! 
At midnight comes the cry. 

2. The watchers on the mountain 
Proclaim the Bridegroom near; 
Go meet Him as He cometh, 
With hallelujahs clear. 
The marriage-feast is waiting, 
The gates wide open stand; 
Up, up, ye heirs of glory; 
The Bridegroom is at hand! 

3. Ye saints, who here in patience 
Your cross and sufferings bore, 
Shall live and reign forever, 
When sorrow is no more. 
Around the throne of glory 
The Lamb ye shall behold; 
In triumph cast before Him 
Your diadems of gold! 

4. Our Hope and Expectation, 
O Jesus, now appear; 
Arise, Desire of nations, 
O’er this benighted sphere. 
With hearts and hands uplifted, 
We plead, O Lord, to see 
The day of earth’s redemption, 
That brings us unto Thee!
