1112. Christian! Seek Not Yet Repose

1. Christian! seek not yet repose,
Hear thy guardian angel say;
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 clear 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.
