Hymn/Song Information

DANGERS OF LIFE




Leave, oh my soul, th’ enchanted ground,
Where sorrows keep a constant sound;
Perplexing cares bestrew the road,
And Satan spreads his snares abroad.


Entangled, how the sinner lies,
And loves the chains in which he dies;
The saint beholds his way beset,
And careful guards his sliding feet.


Infernal foes, a numerous train,
Seek to divert his steps in vain;
Through hostile troops he fights his way,
To realm of everlasting day.


When strength decays and vigour dies,
He seeks to Christ for fresh supplies;
And when the final signal’s given,
The hero then ascends to heaven.
