The Hymns and Carols of Christmas

The Bridal Day

Source: Horatius Bonar, Hymns of Faith and Hope (First Series-New York: Robert Carter and Brothers, 1857; Second Series-London: James Nisbet & Co., 1886), pp. 134-5.

1. The Bridegroom comes!
Bride of the Lamb, awake!
The midnight cry is heard;
Thy sleep forsake.

2. The marriage-day
Has come; life up thy head,
Put on thy bridal robe,
The feast is spread.

3. Shake off earth's dust,
And wash thy weary feet;
Arise, make haste, go forth,
The Bridegroom greet.

4. Sing the new song!
Thy triumph has begun;
Thy tears are wiped away,
Thy night is done.
