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.
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.
