Ye servants of the Lord
1. Ye servants of the Lord,
Each in his office will
Observant of His heavenly 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; Ďtis your Lordís command,
And while we speak Heís near;
Mark the first signal of His hand,
And ready all appear.
4. O happy servant be,
In such a posture found!
He shall his Lord with rapture see,
And be with honour crowned.
5. Christ, shall the banquet spread
With His own royal hand,
And raise that faithful servantís head,
Amid the angelic band.
