1 CHRISTIAN, seek not yet repose,
Cast thy dreams of ease away;
Thou art in the midst of foes:
Watch and pray.

2 Canaan has for thee been won,
Christ triumphant led the way;
In His might possess thine own!
Watch and pray.

3 In the heavenlies see that land,
Satan would thine entrance stay;
Thou against his wiles must stand:
Watch and pray.

4 Principalities and powers,
Mustering their unseen array,
Wait for thy unguarded hours:
Watch and pray.

5 Gird thy heavenly armour on,
Wear it ever, night and day;
Ambushed lies the evil one:
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.
