Lyrics

Parousia is the Greek word used in the Bible for Jesus' second coming.
We wait since the day He ascended
He said He would come again
Some think it will be such a long time
Some think they know just when

We live like there's no tomorrow
We wait with our 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
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?

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
Burn the midnight oil

Are you ready?
You better check your oil
Come on

When the Bridegroom comes you will hear the call

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
Burn the midnight oil

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
Burn the midnight oil
