1. tI know not the hour of His coming,
Nor how He will speak to my heart;
Or whether at morning or mid-day
My spirit to Him will depart.
2. tI know not the bliss that awaits me,
At rest with my Saviour above;
I know not how soon I shall enter
And bathe in the ocean of love.
3. tPerhaps in the midst of my labour
A voice from my Lord I shall hear;
Perhaps in the slumber of mid-night,
Its message may fall on my ear.
4. tI know not, but oh I am watching,
My lamp ever burning and bright;
I know not if Jesus will call me
At morning, at noon, or at night.
But I know I shall wake in the likeness
Of Him I am longing to see;
I know that mine eyes shall behold Him,
Who died for a sinner like me.
