605 ~ My Soul, Be on Thy Guard
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.
Ne'er think the victory won, Nor lay thine armor down; Thy arduous task will not be done Till thou obtain the crown.
