Lyrics:Charlotte Elliott
Music:William H. Monk

This hymn has a unique tune.


Christian, seek not yet repose,

Hear thy gracious Savior say;

Thou are in the midst of foes:

Watch and pray.


Principalities and powers,

Mustering their unseen array,

Wait for thy unguarded hours:

Watch and pray.


Gird thy heavenly armor on,

Wear it ever night and day;

Ambushed lies the evil one:

Watch and pray.


Hear the victors who o'ercame,

Still they mark each warrior's way;

All with one sweet voice exclaim,

Watch and pray.


Hear, above all, hear thy Lord,

Him thou lovest to obey;

Hide within thy heart His word:

Watch and pray.


Watch, as if on that alone

Hung the issue of the day;

Pray, that help may be sent down:

Watch and pray.
