lyrics

my lamp is burning low.
sister, don't let it lose its glow;
the winter is cold
and the night is dark.

sister, show me a bit of what you see.
sister, stay awake with me
and watch what unfolds
and wait for the spark.

you gave your patrimony to the poor,
but if a poor sinner could beg a little more
of your Father above,
would you hear?

oh sister, i need oil for my lamp.
i've been asleep so long, oh! and the night is damp,
and i don't have enough,
and the bridegroom is near.
