Christian, seek not yet repose

Christian, seek not yet repose,
cast your dreams of ease away:
you are in the midst of foes-
watch and pray.

2. Principalities and powers,
mustering their unseen array,
wait for your unguarded hours-
watch and pray.

3. Put your heavenly armour on,
wear it always night and day;
hidden lies the evil one-
watch and pray.

4. Hear, above all, hear your Lord,
whose commands you love to obey,
treasure in your heart his word-
watch and pray.

5. Watch, as if on that alone
hung the issue of the day;
pray that victory shall be won-
watch and pray.
