192. The Vigil Keeper
by Sandra Lowen
Em G D Em Tread firmly, vigil keeper, who watches in the night; G B7 Em Your master, long awaited, may come to you tonight. Am Em Am Em He will not come a rich man, to make of you a king; A Em D Em He comes to light your pathway, and that is everything. You turned your eyes to heaven, where last you saw him go; You asked when to expect him; he said that you would know. The fig tree now is blooming; the hour is at hand; He comes to end your watching, and greet you man-to-man. He herald will proclaim him, no voice announce his sight. He'll come to greet you covertly, stealing in the night. But then proclaim in triumph the way to love and peace; The kingdom will be opened, and all the vigils cease.
