1 Be ye not indolent,
Who would be heirs of grace;
Ye must not make yourselves content,
Till ye have run your race.
2 Ye are to watch and pray,
To pray and never cease;
To grow in grace from day to day,
And gain true holiness.
3 Your sins must be subdu'd
With all your carnal lusts;
Ye cannot serve the living God,
And grovel in the dust.
4 It would be all in vain,
And mocking of the word;
Should you embrace the world again,
And turn from Christ your Lord.
5 Should ye in vain receive
The blessed gospel light!
And suffer Satan to deceive,
To lead you in the night!
6 Yield not to Satan's pow'r,
Since Jesus set you free;
But watch and pray for evermore,
And gain the victory.
