Ye Who Profess The Lord To Love

Ye who profess to love the Lord,
Be wise to watch and pray:
Remember, Satan stands prepar’d
To steal your minds away.

O see that ye live circumspect!
And not as the unwise;
Your chief concerns do not neglect,
Lest Satan gain your prize.

O watch ye unto constant pray’r,
Be fervently employ’d:
Ye are in danger ev’ry where
To have your peace destroy’d.

The tempter tries a thousand ways,
To take you of the path;
Ye need to pray for saving grace,
And true and living faith.

The world is evermore engag’d,
Your fancies to allure!
And Satan sometimes is enrag’d
To execute his pow’r.

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.
