Watch, Ye Saints

598 – Watch, Ye Saints

Major Key: C

1
Watch, ye saints, with eyelids waking;
Lo! The powers of heaven are shaking;
Keep your lamps all trimmed and burning,
Ready for your Lord’s returning.

CHORUS:
Lo! He comes, lo! Jesus comes;
Lo! He come, He comes all glorious!
Jesus comes to reign victorious,
Lo! He comes, yes, Jesus comes.

2
Lo! the promise of your Savior,
Pardoned sin and purchased favor,
Blood-washed robes and crowns of glory;
Haste to tell redemption’s story.

3
Kingdoms at their base are crumbling,
Hark! His chariot wheels are rumbling;
Tell, O tell of grace abounding,
While the seventh trump is sounding.

4
Nations wane, though proud and stately;
Christ His kingdom hasteneth greatly;
Earth her latest pangs is summing;
Shout, ye saints, your Lord is coming.

5
Sinners, come, while Christ is pleading;
Now for you He’s interceding;
Haste, ere grace and time diminished
Shall proclaim the mystery finished.

160 – Watakatifu Kesheni
“Watch Ye Saints”

1
Watakatifu kesheni, nguvu za mbingu zagonga;
Washeni taa tayari kwa kurudi kwake Bwana.

Chorus
Yuaja, Yesu Mfalme, Yuaja mwenye fahari,
Yesu yuaja enzini Karibu Yesu, uje.

2
Piga mbiu, tangazeni habari ya ukombozi.
Ya Mponya wa upendo nayo nguvu ya samaha.

3
Falme nyingi zaangushwa, Panda ya saba hulia;
Tangaza neema yake, kabla ya kupita saa.

4
Mataifa yapotea, nchi zajaa uchungu:
Kristo anaharakisha, Unabii unatimizwa.

5
Wenye dhambi njoni sasa Kristo awapatanishe,
Mbio twaeni neema, kitambo muda waisha.
