WATCH AND PRAY




My soul, be on thy guard;
Ten thousand foes arise;
The hosts of sin are pressing hard
To draw thee from the skies.


O watch, and fight, and pray;
The battle ne’er give o’er;
Renew it boldly every day,
And help divine implore.


Never think the victory won,
Nor lay thine armour down;
The work of faith will not be done,
Till thou obtain the crown.


Fight on, my soul, till death
Shall bring thee to thy God;
He’ll take thee, at thy parting breath,
To His divine abode.


---Alternative verses---


My soul, be on thy guard;
Ten thousand foes arise;
And hosts of sin are pressing hard
To draw thee from the skies.


Ne'er think the victory won,
Nor once at ease sit down:
Thy arduous work still not be done,
Till thou hast got thy crown.


Ne’er think the victory won,
Nor once at ease sit down;
Thy arduous work will not be done,
Till thou hast got thy crown.


Fight on, my soul, till death
Shall bring thee to thy God;
He’ll take thee, at thy parting breath,
Up to His blest abode.
