Whether it be noon or night,
Faithful to Him will He find us watching,
With our lamps all trimmed and bright?
Ready for the soul’s bright home?
Say, will He find you and me still watching,
Waiting, waiting when the Lord shall come?
He shall call us one by one,
When to the Lord we restore our talents,
Will He answer thee—Well done?
Do we seek to do our best?
If in our hearts there is naught condemns us,
We shall have a glorious rest.
In His glory they shall share;
If He shall come at the dawn or midnight,
Will He find us watching there?
