Description

For SATB Choir (opt. hand percussion). Bill Pasch has given us a setting of this spiritual that is great fun to sing and incorporates snippets of the melody of Wachet Auf (Wake, O Wake). A perfect beginning to Advent as well as the other times the lesson of the Wise and Foolish Maidens appears in the lectionary.

Solo: Wake! Awake! Keep your lamps trimmed!
Dark night will soon be gone.

Keep your lamps trimmed and burnin',
For this work's almost done.

Chldren don't grow weary,
For this work's almost done.

Darker midnight lies before us,
'fore this work's almost done.

Lo, the morning soon is breaking.
For this work's almost done.
