The song has four verses, each three lines long. There is a two-line chorus which is repeated after each verse. A rough outline is:
1 Christ, come quickly, there’s danger at the door,
Come, Lord Jesus, the light is dying,
the night keeps crying: Come, Lord Jesus.
2 Want demands a hearing in far too many lands.
3 The world awaits in darkness a mighty burst of light,
4 The clouds shall send a Savior like softly falling rain,
