604 ~ We Know Not the Hour


We know not the hour of the Master's appearing; Yet signs all foretell that the moment is nearing When He shall return; 'tis a promise most cheering; But we know not the hour.


He will come, let us watch and be ready; He will come, hallelujah! hallelujah! He will come in the clouds of His Father's bright glory But we know not the hour.


There's light for the wise who are seeking salvation; There's truth in the book of the Lord's revelation; Each prophecy points to the great consummation; But we know not the hour.


We'll watch and we'll pray, with our lamps trimmed and burning; We'll work and we'll wait till the Master's returning; We'll sing and rejoice, every omen discerning; But we know not the hour.
