Pray, brethren, pray!
The sands are falling;
Pray, brethren, pray!
God’s voice is calling.
Yon turret strikes the dying chime;
We kneel upon the verge of time:

Refrain:
Eternity is drawing nigh!
Eternity is drawing nigh!

Praise, brethren, praise!

Praise, brethren, praise!
The fight is ending.
Behold, the glory draweth near,
The King Himself will soon appear:

Watch, brethren, watch!
The years are dying;
Watch, brethren, watch!

Watch as men watch the parting breath,

With girded loins all ready stand,
Behold, the Bridegroom is at hand:
