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,

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!
