Heir of the Kingdom


Heir of the kingdom, O why dost thou slumber?
Why art thou sleeping so near thy blest home?
Wake thee, arouse thee, and gird on thine armor,
Speed, for the moments are hurrying on.

Heir of the kingdom, say, why dost thou linger?
How canst thou tarry in sight of the prize?
Up, and adorn thee, the Savior is coming;
Haste to receive Him descending the skies.

Earthís mighty nations, in strife and commotion,
Tremble with terror, and sink in dismay;
Listen, ítis naught but the chariotís loud rumbling;
Heir of the kingdom, no longer delay.

Stay not, O stay not, for earthís vain allurements!
See how its glory is passing away;
Break the strong fetters the foe hath bound oíer thee;
Heir of the kingdom, turn, turn thee away.

Keep the eye single, the head upward lifted;
Watch for the glory of earthís coming King;
Lo! oíer the mountain tops light is now breaking;
Heirs of the kingdom, rejoice ye and sing.
