At midnight there was a cry made, Behold, the bridegroom cometh; go ye out to meet him. Then all [the] virgins arose, and trimmed their lamps.@Matthew 25:6-7

E. F. Miller in The Heavenly Choir, edited by Theodore Wood (New York: C. M. Cady, 1876), number 67 (🔊 pdf nwc). These words were in use by at least 1868. For another arrangement, see Trim Your Lamps and Be Ready.

Rejoice, ye saints! the time draws near
When Christ will in the clouds appear,
And for His people call.

Refrain

Trim your lamps, and be ready,
Trim your lamps, and be ready,
Trim your lamps, and be ready
For the midnight cry.
For the midnight cry,
For the midnight cry,
Trim your lamps and be ready,
For the midnight cry.

The trumpet sounds, the thunders roll;
The heavens passing as a scroll;
The earth will burn with fire.

Refrain

Poor sinners then on earth will cry,
While lightnings flash from out the sky,
O mountains, on us fall!

Refrain

Yes, sinners then on earth will burn,
To ashes will their bodies turn,
The saints will shout for joy.

Refrain

Then on a sea of glass shall stand,
King Jesus, with His conquering band,
Safe from consuming fire.

Refrain

Come, brethren all, and let us try
To warn poor sinners, and to cry,
Behold, the Bridegroom comes!

Refrain

Come trim your lamps, before too late,
And ready for the bridegroom wait,
And watch to enter in.
