Hymnary Friends,

Please pardon this brief interruption, and please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. Here's why.

Each month half a million people visit this website for free access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet. But this project does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. Twice a year we hold a fund drive, and these drives are critical to our future.

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure giving site. Or you can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.
Harry Plantinga

Representative Text

1 Watch and pray! when Satan tempts thee
When assail’d by foes unseen;
Christ is ever near to shield thee;
In thy conflicts look to Him.

Watch and pray, the time is passing,
Sin and strife will soon be o’er;
Watch and pray till Glory’s dawning—
Then we’ll praise for evermore.

2 Watch! for Satan’s hosts surround thee,
Gird thine armor on each day;
They are waiting to ensnare thee;
Look to Jesus, watch and pray. [Refrain]

3 Pray! for thou art weak and helpless,
Poor and wretched and undone;
None can face the pow’rs of darkness,
Save in strength of Christ alone. [Refrain]
