Will Jesus Find Us Watching?
Words by Fanny J. Crosby

Matthew 25:13
"Watch therefore, for ye know neither the day
nor the hour wherein the Son of man cometh."

          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?

            Chorus
            Oh, 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"?

            Chorus
            Oh, 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?

          Have we been true to the trust He left us?
          Do we seek to do our best?
          If we obey all the Lord commands us,
          We shall then be truly blest.

            Chorus
            Oh, 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?

          Blessed 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?

            Chorus
            Oh, 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?
