    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.
