Will our lamps be filled and ready, When the Bridegroom
And our lights be clear and steady, When the Bridegroom comes?
In the night, That solemn night (that solemn night),
Will our lamps be burning bright, When the Bridegroom comes?
O be ready!O be ready!O be ready when the Bridegroom comes!
From the Reverend Knapp’s Bible Songs of Salvation and Victory

Sorry. I really would love to continue this chapter and give the whole book away, but I'd also really love to sell a few books to pay the bills.
