'Let us keep steadfast guard.....With lighted hearts all night,
That when Christ comes, we stand prepared,....And meet him with delight.'
At midnight's season chill,....Lay Paul and Silas bound,
Bound and in prison sang they still, ......And singing, freedom found,
Our prison is this earth.....And yet we sing to thee;
Break sin's strong fetters, lead us forth,
Set us, believing, free!
Meet for thy realm in heaven,....Make us, O holy King!
That through the ages it be given,....To us thy praise to sing.'
