Verse 1
Christian, seek not yet repose;
Hear Thy guardian angel say;
Thou art in the midst of foes:
Watch and pray.

Verse 2
Principalities and power
Mustering their unseen array,
Wait for thy unguarded hours:
Watch and pray.

Verse 3
Gird thy heavenly armour on;
Wear it ever, night and day;
Ambushed lies the evil one;
Watch and pray.

Verse 4
Hear the victors who o'ercame;
Still they mark each warrior's way;
All with one sweet voice exclaim,
Watch and pray.

Verse 5
Hear, above all, hear the Lord,
Him thou lovest to obey;
Hide within thy heart His word:
Watch and pray.

Verse 6
Watch, as if on that alone
Hung the issue of the day:
Pray, that help may be sent down:
Watch and pray.
