    Verse 1
    Ye servants of the Lord
    Each in his office wait,
    Observant of His heavenly word,
    And watchful at His gate.

    Verse 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.

    Verse 3
    Watch: 'tis your Lord's command;
    And, while we speak, He's near;
    Mark the first signal of His hand,
    And ready all appear.

    Verse 4
    O happy servant he,
    In such employment found!
    He shall his Lord with rapture see,
    And be with honour crowned.

    Verse 5
    Christ shall the banquet spread
    With His own royal hand,
    And raise that faithful servant's head
    Amid the angelic band.
