Sweet promise is giv'n to all who believe,
Behold I come quickly, mine own to receive
Hold fast till I come; the danger is great;
Sleep not as do others; be watchful, and wait
Hold fast till I come sweet promise of heavn'n,
The kingdom restored, to you shall be giv'n.
Come, enter my joy, sit down on my throne
Bright crowns are in waiting; hold fast till I come.
We'll watch unto pray'r" with lamps burning bright;
He comes to all others a thief in the night.
We know he is near, but know not the day,
As spring shows that summer is not far away.
Yes! this is our hope, 'tis built on His word,
The glorious appearing of Jesus, our Lord;
Of promises all, it stands as the sum:
Behold I come quickly, hold fast till I come.
Nevertheless that which ye have, hold fast till I come.
