|Hear! hear! Oh earth, the watchmen cry,|
The great millennial day draws nigh
To Abraham's faithful race;
In which the Lord revealed in fire,
Will make the ungodly know His ire,
Who would not know His grace.
Oh solemn, dreadful, glorious news:
The Gentiles' times about to close,
And Zion's king appear.
Oh! then, what fearfulness shall seize
Those virgins who have lived at ease
Nor thought the Bridegroom near!
