32 But of that day and that hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels which are in heaven, neither the Son, but the Father. 33 Take ye heed, watch and pray: for ye know not when the time is. 34 For the Son of man is as a man taking a far journey, who left his house, and gave authority to his servants, and to every man his work, and commanded the porter to watch. 35 Watch ye therefore: for ye know not when the master of the house cometh, at even, or at midnight, or at the cockcrowing, or in the morning: 36 Lest coming suddenly he find you sleeping. 37 And what I say unto you I say unto all, Watch.(KJV)

1. O’er the distant mountains breaking 
Comes the redd’ning dawn of day, 
Rise, my soul, from sleep awaking; 
Rise and sing and watch and pray. 
‘Tis thy Savior, 
‘Tis thy Savior, 
On His bright returning way. 

2. O Thou Long-expected, weary 
Waits my anxious soul for Thee; 
Life is dark, and earth is dreary, 
Where Thy light I do not see. 
O my Savior, 
O my Savior, 
When wilt Thou return to me? 

3. Nearer is my soul’s salvation; 
Spent the night, the day at hand. 
Keep me in my lowly station, 
Watching for Thee till I stand, 
O my Savior, 
O my Savior, 
In Thy bright, Thy promised land. 

4. With my lamp well trimmed and burning, 
Swift to hear and slow to roam, 
Watching for Thy glad returning 
To restore me to my home. 
Come, my Savior, 
Come, my Savior, 
O my Savior, quickly come.
