Berean Christadelphian Hymns

H89_tune1

SONG NUMBER H89_tune1

 How long, Oh Lord our Saviour,
Wilt Thou remain away?
Our hearts are sometimes weary,
That Thou dost absent stay.

Oh! when shall come the moment
When brighter far than morn,
The sunshine of Thy glory,
Shall Israel adorn?

How long, Oh gracious Master,
Wilt Thou Thy household leave?
So long hast Thou now tarried,
Few Thy return believe:

Immersed in sloth and folly,
The people, Lord, we see
And few of us stand ready,
With joy to welcome Thee.

How long, Oh heavenly bridegroom?
How long wilt Thou delay?
And yet how few are grieving,
That Thou dost absent stay:

So many have their portion
And calling now forgot;
And seek for ease and glory,
Where Thou, their Lord, art not.

Oh! wake Thy slumbering virgins,
Send forth the solemn cry!
Let all Thy saints repeat it:
The Bridegroom draweth nigh!

May all our lamps be burning
Our loins well girded be:
Each longing heart preparing
With joy to welcome Thee.
