8 How long, our Father, O how long
Shall that pure time delay?
Come on, come on, ye holy throng,
And bring the glorious day.
 
Hymn 35 • There’s a feast of fat things for the righteous preparing
HYMN 35. P. M.
 
1 There’s a feast of fat things for the righteous preparing.
That the good of this world all the saints may be sharing;
For the harvest is ripe, and the reapers have learn’d
To gather the wheat, that the tares may be burn’d.
Come to the supper—come to the supper—
Come to the supper of the great Bridegroom.
 
2 Go forth all ye servants unto every nation,
And lift up your voices and make proclamation,
For to cease from all evil, and leave off all mirth,
For the Savior is coming to reign on the earth.
 
3 Go set forth the judgments to come, and the sorrow,
For after to-day, O there cometh tomorrow, [p. 46]
8 How long, our Father, O how long
