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.

Ye who profess the Lord to love

Ye who profess the Lord to love

Published in 3 hymnals

Representative Text

1 Ye who profess to love the Lord,
Be wise to watch and pray:
Remember, Satan stands prepar'd
To steal your minds away.

2 O see that ye live circumspect!
And not as the unwise;
Your chief concerns do not neglect,
Lest Satan gain your prize.

3 O watch ye unto constant pray'r,
Be fervently employ'd:
Ye are in danger ev'ry where
To have your peace destroy'd.

4 The tempter tries a thousand ways,
To take you of the path;
Ye need to pray for saving grace,
And true and living faith.

5 The world is evermore engag'd,
Your fancies to allure!
And Satan sometimes is enrag'd
To execute his pow'r.

6 Then let us watch, and pray and strive,
To walk the narrow road;
And seek to keep our souls alive
To serve the living God.
