[Verse 1] Em G D Em Tread firmly, vigil keeper, who watches in the night; G A B Your master, long awaited, may come to you tonight. Em Am Em Am Em He will not come a rich man, to make of you a king; A Em B Em He comes to light your pathway, and that is everything. [Verse 2] Em G D Em You turned your eyes to heaven, where last you saw him go; G A B You asked when to expect him; he said that you would know. Em Am Em Am Em The fig tree now is blooming; the hour is at hand; A Em B Em He comes to end your watching, and greet you man-to-man. [Verse 3] Em G D Em No herald will proclaim him, no voice announce his sight. G A B He'll come to greet you covertly, stealing in the night. Em Am Em Am Em But then proclaim in triumph the way to love and peace; A Em B Em The kingdom will be opened, and all the vigils cease.
