Midnight Oil Lyrics

Artist: Petra
Album: Wake-Up Call

Words and music by Bob Hartman
Based on Matthew 25:1-13

We wait since the day He ascended
He said He would come again
Some think it will be such a long time
Some they the know just when
We live like there's no tomorrow
We wait with out lamps of oil
We watch for the midnight hour
The day we cease our toil
When the trumpet sounds and the bridegroom comes

The wedding's gonna be so royal
So we gotta keep staying loyal
'Cause our feet are gonna leave this soil
When we burn the midnight oil
When we burn the midnight oil

Some wait from the top of the mountain
Away from the world below
Some work while there's still a harvest
No rest when there's seed to sow
We go out to wait for the bridegroom
Some bring oil of readiness
Some lamps will be burned out waiting
Left out in their emptiness
Will our lamps be full at parousia?

When the bridegroom comes we will hear the call
