Representative Text

1 When the blush of morning light
Paints the golden eastern skies
From the balmy sleep of night,
Lift to God thy waking eyes.

Refrain:
Traveler on thy heavenward way,
Jesus bids thee watch and pray;
Traveler on thy heavenward way,
Jesus bids thee watch and pray.

2 From the sultry noontide beams,
Would’st thou find a clam retreat?
Dost thou pant for cooling streams?
Rest thee at the mercy-seat. [Refrain]

3 When the evening shades descend,
Tranquil o’er the earth and sea,
Go, thy Saviour and thy Friend
Holds a precious gift for thee. [Refrain]

4 Watch with Jesus all the night,
Till the shadows glide away;
Watch till comes the morning light,
Weary pilgrim, watch and pray. [Refrain]
