Why Do You Weep (Tell me why do you weep)
Tell me why do you weep?
Tell me why do you mourn?
Tell me why do you look so sad?
Tell me why don't you dance?
Tell me why don't you sing?
Tell me why don't you look to the sky?
Don't you know that your King is nigh?
He is even at the gates of Jerusalem
He is coming on the morning sky
Don't you know that the feast is ready
Ready for the bride to come?
Brothers, keep your lamps a-burning
the ending of the age is come
Don't you know you are the Lord's invited?
Don't you know you are the chosen ones?
You in whom He has delighted
Shall rise with Jesus when He comes
Come arise, my love, my fairest daughter
The winter and the rain are gone
The flowers of summer are appearing
The time of singing songs has come
