Watch and Pray
Words: Charlotte Elliott, 1839
1. Christian, seek not yet repose, Cast thy dreams of ease away; Thou art in the midst of foes: Watch and pray.
2. Principalities and powers, Mustering their unseen array, Wait for thy unguarded hours: Watch and pray.
3. Gird thy heavenly armor on, Wear it ever, night and day; Ambushed lies the evil one: Watch and pray.
4. Hear the victors who o'ercame; Still they mark each warrior's way; All with one sweet voice exclaim, "Watch and pray."
5. Hear, above all, hear Thy Lord, Him thou lovest to obey; Hide within thy heart His word, "Watch and pray."
6. Watch, as if on that alone Hung the issue of the day; Pray, that help may be sent down, Watch and pray.
