Refrain: Stand awake and watch!

1. A lit lamp carry in your hands – and when the Lord will come
He will open the doors of his house.

2. As the guardians of the hearth stand – and when the Lord will come
He will make you responsible for his house.

3. You are invited to the feast – and when the Lord will come
He will dress you for the wedding.
