I heard a voice coming from heaven: Come, all ye most wise virgins, store up oil in your vessels, until the bridegroom cometh. A cry goes up at midnight: Behold, the bridegroom cometh.

Source of text:
Jeremiah 40:10, Matthew 25:6

10 As for me, behold, I will dwell at Mizpah, to serve the Chaldeans, which will come unto us: but ye, gather ye wine, and summer fruits, and oil, and put them in your vessels, and dwell in your cities that ye have taken.

And at midnight there was a cry made, Behold, the bridegroom cometh; go ye out to meet him.

350px-felix_mendelssohn_bartholdy_by_eduard_magnusMatthew 2:1-2; Numbers 24:17; Psalm 2:9

Now when Jesus was born in Bethlehem of Judaea in the days of Herod the king, behold, there came wise men from the east to Jerusalem,

Saying, Where is he that is born King of the Jews? for we have seen his star in the east, and are come to worship him.

17 I shall see him, but not now: I shall behold him, but not nigh: there shall come a Star out of Jacob, and a Sceptre shall rise out of Israel, and shall smite the corners of Moab, and destroy all the children of Sheth.

Thou shalt break them with a rod of iron; thou shalt dash them in pieces like a potter’s vessel.

“When Jesus, Our Lord” from Christus, Op. 97 (1846-47), composed by Felix Mendelssohn Bartholdy (1809-47)
