When Jesus comes to reward His servants
When Jesus comes to reward His servants,
Whether it be noon or night,
Faithful to Him will He find us watching,
With our lamps all trimmed and bright?
O can we say we are ready, brother?
Ready for the soul’s bright home?
Say, will He find you and me still watching,
Waiting, waiting when the Lord shall come?
If, at the dawn of the early morning,
He shall call us one by one,
When to the Lord we restore our talents,
Will He answer thee—“Well done”?
Have we been true to the trust He left us?
Do we seek to do our best?
If in our hearts there is naught condemns us,
We shall have a glorious rest.
Bless?d are those whom the Lord finds watching,
In His glory they shall share;
If He shall come at the dawn or midnight,
Will He find us watching there?
The above recordings may not match your hymn-book lyrics exactly. This is because some tunes come in many versions (changed timings, additional notes, different harmonies etc). You are advised to check the various recordings to find the one that suits best your requirements.
You can use programs like Audacity and Song Surgeon to adjust the tempo, pitch and number of verses in the MP3 files.
If you feel the linked tune is the wrong tune (I could have made a mistake in creating the Hymn_Code), please e_mail me with the details (Hymnbook name, and hymn number, and what you think is the problem).
