Ye virgin souls a-rise,

With all the dead awake,

Unto salvation wise,

Oil in your vessels take;

Upstarting at the midnight cry,

Upstarting at the midnight cry,

Be-hold Behold your heav'nly bridegroom nigh.

He comes, he comes, to call

The nations to his bar,

And take to glory all

Who meet for glory are:

Make ready for your full reward,

Go forth, with joy, to meet your Lord.

Go, meet him in the sky,

Your everlasting friend-

Your head to glorify,

With all his saints ascend:

Ye pure in heart, obtain the grace

To see, without a vail, his face.

Ye that have here receiv'd

The unction from above,

And in his spirit liv'd,

And thirsted for his love.

Jesus shall claim you for his bride:

Rejoice with all the sanctified.

Rejoice in glorious hope

Of that great day unknown,

When you shall be caught up

To stand before his throne;

Called to partake the marriage feast,

And lean on our Immanuel's breast.

The everlasting doors

Shall soon the saints receive,

With seraphs, thrones, and powers,

In glorious joy to live:

And far from sorrow, pain and sin,

With god eternally shut in.

Then let us wait to hear

The trumpet's welcome sound,

To see our Lord appear,

May we be watching found!

Enrob'd in righteousness divine,

In which the bride shall ever shine.
