Hi Daniel,

I can't figure out the words in parentheses. One I guessed at but not sure.
Maybe someone else can fill in the blanks. I would appreciate it

Nancy

WATCHMAN

DARK IS THE CITY, NO LIGHT WITHIN
SLEEP OVERTAKES THEM, WOMEN AND MEN
BUT IN THE TOWER LIGHT CAN BE FOUND
THERE IS A WATCHMAN GUARDING EACH ( ? )

SEE YONDER DANGER RISE AS A CLOUD,
TAKE UP YOUR TRUMPET, BLOW LONG AND LOUD
WARN ALL THE PEOPLE DEATH IS AT HAND
HEED NOW THE TRUMPET BLASTING ( ? )

WATCHMAN, WATCHMAN WHAT OF THE NIGHT
WHEN COMES THE MORNING, WHEN COMES THE LIGHT
SWIFT COMES THE MORNING THEN IT IS NIGHT
HEED NOW THE WARNING, PREPARE TO FIGHT

BUT IF THE WATCHMAN FAILS TO ALARM
SOUNDS NOT THE TRUMPET WHEN THERE IS HARM
LOST IS THE CITY, ( SLAIN ) EVERY MAN
BUT OF THE WATCHMAN THERE’S BLOOD ON HIS HAND

YE ARE THE WATCHMAN IN THIS DARK NIGHT
SIN HAS MEN BLINDED, THEY HAVE NO LIGHT
GOD HAS COMMANDED WARN EVERY MAN
AND OF THEIR BLOOD HE REQUIRES AT OUR HAND

WATCHMAN, WATCHMAN WHAT OF THE NIGHT
JUDGEMENT IS COMING. WHERE IS YOUR LIGHT
TRUMPET THE WARNING TO EVERY MAN
LEST YE REQUIRE THEIR BLOOD AT YOUR HAND

WATCHMAN, WATCHMAN, WATCHMAN WHERE IS YOUR LIGHT

someone anonymously e-mailed me the corrections:

But in the tower light can be found
There is a watchman guarding each sound

Warn all the people, death is at hand
Heed now the trumpet blasting the land
