Representative Text

1 Jesus, help me watch and pray,
On Thyself relying;
May I walk in wisdom’s way,
With Thy will complying.

Refrain:
Watching, praying, day by day,
Watching lest I go astray;
Trusting Thee in time of need,
Watching, praying ever.

2 Tempest tossed and sore distressed,
Still to Thee I’m clinging;
Naught on earth can give me rest,
Only sorrow bringing. [Refrain]

3 Brighter scenes in Heav’n await
For my raptured vision;
Soon I’ll pass the pearly gate,
To the fields elysian. [Refrain]
