Keep On Watching Notzrim

Notzrim is a Hebrew word which means, "watchmen".
Isaiah 62:6 attests, "I have set watchmen upon your walls,
O Jerusalem, who will never hold their peace day or night..."

Morning Star
By Donna Pomponio

"How beautiful upon the mountains are
the feet of him who brings good tidings,
who publishes peace, who brings good tidings of good,
who publishes salvation, who says to Zion,
Your God reigns!

Hark, your watchmen lift up their voices;
together they sing for joy; for they shall see
eye to eye the return of the Lord to Zion."
Isaiah 52:7-8

Mount of Olives
Reuven Rubin

On the hilltops, on the mountains,
There are gleams of golden light,
For the promised morn is dawning,
And its star is growing bright.

Keep on watching, O ye faithful
For the time is drawing nigh
We shall see the King of glory
With His angels, by and by.

O the promised morn is dawning,
When the ransomed of the King
Shall return and come to Zion,
And His praise forever sing.

Hallelujah! what a moment
When the dead in Christ shall rise,
And the trumpet of the ages
Sound in triumph from the skies!

Keep on watching, be not weary,
For the Lord will surely come;
He has said, and we believe it,
He will take His people home.

"Keep On Watching"
Lyrics by Fanny Crosby
Music by Victor H. Benke
