Watchman Tell Us Of The Night lyrics:

Watchman, tell us of the night
What its signs of promise are?

Traveler, o'er yon mountain's height
See that glory beaming star.

Watchman, does its beauteous ray
Aught of joy or hope foretell?

Traveler, yes, it brings the day
Promised day of Israel.

Watchman, tell us of the night
Higher yet that star ascends.

Traveler, blessedness and light
Peace and truth its course portends.

Watchman, will its beams alone
Gild the spot that gave them birth?

Traveler, ages are its own
See, it bursts o'er all the earth.

Watchman, tell us of the night
For the morning seems to dawn.

Traveler, darkness takes its flight
Doubt and terror are withdrawn.

Watchman, let thy wanderings cease
Hie thee to thy quiet home.

Traveler, lo! the Prince of Peace
Lo! the Son of God is come!
