9714. The Savior Bids Us Watch And Pray

1 The Savior bids us watch and pray
Through life’s momentous hour,
And grants the Spirit’s quickening ray
To those who seek His power.

2 The Savior bids us watch and pray,
Maintain a warrior’s strife;
O Christian! hear His voice today:
Obedience is thy life.

3 The Savior bids us watch and pray,
For soon the hour will come
That calls us from the earth away
To our eternal home.

4 The Savior bids us watch and pray,
O hearken to His voice,
And follow where He leads the way,
To Heav’n’s eternal joys!
