Christian, Seek Not Repose

Verse 1

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

Verse 2

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

Verse 3

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

Verse 4

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

Verse 5

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