THEY WATCH FOR YOUR SOULS




Let Zion’s watchmen all awake
And take th’alarm they give;
Now let them, from the mouth of God
Their solemn charge receive.


’Tis not a cause of small import
The pastor’s care demands;
But what might fill an angel’s heart
And filled a Saviour’s hands.


They watch for souls for which the Lord
Did heavenly bliss forego;
Those that have tasted His rich grace,
And seek His will to know.


All to the great tribunal haste
Th’account to render there;
And shouldst Thou strictly mark our faults
Lord, where should we appear?


May that same Jesus, Whom they preach,
Their own Redeemer be;
And watch Thou daily o’er their souls,
That they may watch for Thee.


---Alternative verses---


Let Zion’s watchmen all awake
And take th’alarm they give;
Now let them, from the mouth of God
Their awful charge receive.


They watch for souls for which the Lord
Did heavenly bliss forego;
For souls, which must for ever live
In raptures, or in woe.


May they in Jesus, whom they preach,
Their own Redeemer see;
And watch thou daily o’er their souls,
That they may watch for thee.


May they, that Jesus, Whom they preach,
Their own Redeemer see;
And watch Thou daily o’er their souls,
That they may watch for Thee.


May they, that Jesus, Whom they preach,
Their own Redeemer see;
Lord watch Thou daily o’er their souls,
That they may watch for Thee.
