A Hymn: It is High Time

Author:

Singing and composing hymns and other songs have been part of my life since my teenage days

a-hymn-it-is-high-time

Composer’s Foreword

I am not good in notes, but from the local church trainings while in choir, I have come around with this hymn using another hymn. If you know the hymn beneath, then you can join me to sing this song unto the Lord.

The Composed Song

1. This therefore be the high time

To be ‘woken out of sleep

For it is even now that

Our salvation draweth near

More than when we believeth

The night is very far spent

The day is even at hand

This is why you should repent.


2. This therefore be the high time

To be ‘woken out of sleep

That we cast the works of flesh

Which is of darkness off us

And let us put the armor

The armor of the light on

And we should honestly walk

Like the children of the light


3. This therefore be the high time

To be ‘woken out of sleep

We should take the chambering

And the conduct of wantonness

Rioting and drunkenness

Even the strive and envying

Let us take off from our ways

Let us be walking with Christ


4. This therefore be the high time

To be ‘woken out of sleep

Therefore let us not provide

Provide for the works of the flesh

And we then therefore shall not

Fulfill the lusts of the flesh

But this is what we will do

We shall put on Jesus Christ


5. This therefore be the high time

To be ‘woken out of sleep

And that we become renewed

In the spirit of our mind

Let us therefore be walking

Through the spirit of the God (Lord)

We should put on the new man

Which is created after God.
