549 – Watch, Ye Saints
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.
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. 160
