WATCH AND PRAY




Christian, seek not yet repose,
Cast thy dreams of ease away.
Thou art in the midst of foes:
Watch and pray.


Canaan has for thee been won,
Christ triumphant led the way;
In His might possess thine own!
Watch and pray.


In the heavenlies see that land,
Satan would thine entrance stay;
Thou against his wiles must stand:
Watch and pray.


Principalities and powers,
Mustering their unseen array,
Wait for thine unguarded hours:
Watch and pray.


Gird thy heavenly armour on,
Wear it ever, night and day;
Ambushed lies the evil one:
Watch and pray.


Hear the victors who o'ercame;
Still they mark each warrior's way;
All with one sweet voice exclaim,
"Watch and pray."


Hear, above all, hear thy Lord,
Him thou lovest to obey;
Hide within thy heart His word,
"Watch and pray."


Twas by watching and by prayer
Holy men of olden day
Won the palms and crowns they wear ;
"Watch and pray. "


Watch, as if on that alone
Hung the issue of the day;
Pray, that help may be sent down:
Watch and pray.


Watch, for thou thy guard must keep ;
Pray, for God must speed thy way ;
Narrow is the road, and steep ;
"Watch and pray."


---Alternative verses---


Christian! seek not yet repose,
hear thy guardian angel say;
thou art in the midst of foes;
watch and pray.


Listen to thy sorrowing Lord,
Him thou lovest to obey :
It is He who speaks the word ;
"Watch and pray."
