595 ~ Let Every Lamp Be Burning



1

Let every lamp be burning bright,
The darkest hour is nearing;
The darkest hour of earth's long night,
Before the Lord's appearing.


Refrain

Then trim your lamps, my brethren dear,
Then trim your lamps with godly fear;
The Master's coming draweth near,
Let every lamp be burning.


2

Though thousands calmly slumber on,
The last great message spurning,
We'll rest our living faith upon
His promise of returning.


3

His word our lamp, His truth our guide,
We cannot be mistaken;
Though dangers rise on every side,
We shall not be forsaken.


4

Then let good works with faith appear,
To help the world around us;
Obedience brings the blessing near
When faith has firmly bound us.
