Ten virgins sat awaiting Him
Their lamps alight but growing dim.
The cry came forth for all to hear,
“The Bridegroom comes, He’s very near.”
These virgins start their lamps to trim
So that they may go with Him.
The wise have oil in their cruse
The foolish, they have none to use.
The foolish beg the wise to share
But there is not enough in there.
So! to replenish your supply
At the market you must buy.
And so away the foolish go
To sellers they already know.
Now with their lamps shining bright
They venture forth into the night.
Arriving at the wedding feast
They knock, to enter in at least.
The door is locked they can’t go in
A shame they’d let their lamps grow dim.
A cruse of oil in the hand
Will guarantee that we may stand
Before the bridegroom on that day
And not a one may say us nay.
But two or three or even four
In other hands we know for sure
Will only cause us to be slow
And Christ may come while we go.
