603 ~ Christian, Seek Not Repose



1

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


2

Gird thy heavenly armor on,
Wear it ever, night and day;
Ambushed lies the evil one;
Watch and pray!


3

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


4

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


5

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