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]Source: Christian Endeavor Hymns #130
