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.
