Though Jesus Watches Oer My Way


Tho’ Jesus watches o’er my way
And is beside me ev’ry day;
Still, still he bids me watch and pray,
For sin is ev’rywhere.

Chorus:
He bids me watch and pray,
He bids me watch and pray;
Where’er I go, whate’er I do,
He bids me watch and pray.

When ‘mid temptation’s pow’r I stand
In his frim clasp he’ll hold my hand,
Yet-“Watch and pray” is his command,
“As long as life shall last.” [Chorus]

I need not take one step alone
Since Jesus claims me for his own:-
Yet from the blest Redeemer’s throne
The words came-“Watch and pray.” [Chorus]
