Charlotte Elliott (Шарлотта Эллиотт)


Watch and Pray


“CHRISTIAN! seek not yet repose,”
Hear thy guardian angel say;
Thou art in the midst of foes;
                    “Watch and pray.”

Principalities and powers,
Mustering their unseen array,
Wait for thy unguarded hours;
                    “Watch and pray.”

Gird thy heavenly armour on,
Wear it ever night and day;	        
Ambushed lies the evil one;
                    “Watch and pray.”

Hear the victors who o’ercame;
Still they mark each warrior’s way;
All with one sweet voice exclaim
                    “Watch and pray.”

Hear, above all, hear thy Lord,
Him thou lovest to obey;
Hide within thy heart His word,	
                    “Watch and pray.”

Watch, as if on that alone
Hung the issue of the day;
Pray, that help may be sent down;
                    “Watch and pray.”
