10792. Christian! Walk Carefully

1 Christian! walk carefully—danger is near;
Work out thy journey with trembling and fear;
Snares from without, and temptations within,
Seek to entice thee again into sin.

2 Christian! walk humbly—exult not in pride;
All that thou hast is by Jesus supplied;
He holdeth thee up, He directeth thy ways,
To Him the glory—to Him be the praise.

3 Christian! walk cheerfully, though the dark storm
Fill the bright sky with the clouds of alarm:
Soon will the clouds and the tempest be past,
And thou shalt dwell with thy Savior at last.

4 Christian! walk steadfastly, while it is light;
Swift are approaching the shades of the night:
All that thy master hath bidden thee do,
Haste to perform, for the moments are few.

5 Christian! walk prayerfully—oft wilt thou fall,
If thou forget on thy Savior to call:
Safe shalt thou walk through each trial and care,
If thou art clad in the armor of prayer.

6 Christian! walk joyfully—trouble and pain
Cease when the haven of rest thou dost gain;
This thy bright glory, and this thy reward,
"Enter thou into the joy of thy Lord!"
