Christian, seek not yet repose,
cast your dreams of ease away: you are in the midst of foes— watch and pray.
Principalities and powers, mustering their unseen array, wait for your unguarded hours— watch and pray.
Put your heavenly armour on, wear it always night and day; Hidden lies the evil one— watch and pray.
Hear, above all, hear your Lord, whose commands you love to obey, treasure in your heart his word— watch and pray.
Watch, as if on that alone
hung the issue of the day;
pray that victory shall be won— watch and pray.
What a wonderful hymn exhorting us to pray until we pray, as the puritans said.
