#148: Will Jesus Find Us Watching?

(Part of a series singing through the hymnbook I grew up with: Great Hymns of the Faith)

1

When Jesus comes to reward His servants,

Whether it be noon or night,

Faithful to Him will He find us watching,

With our lamps all trimmed and bright?

CHORUS

O can we say we are ready brother?

Ready for the soul’S bright home?

Say, will He find you and me still watching,

Waiting, waiting when the Lord shall come?

2

If at the dawn of the early morning

He shall call us one by one,

When to the Lord we restore our talents,

Will He answer thee — “Well done”?

CHORUS

3

Have we been true to the trust He left us?

Do we seek to do our best?

If in our hearts there is naught condemns us,

We shall have a glorious rest.

CHORUS

4

Blessed are those whom the Lord finds watching,

In His glory they shall share;

If He shall come at the dawn or midnight,

Will He find us watching there?

CHORUS
