Hymn : TLH 446 st. 2,4,5: Rise, my Soul, to Watch and Pray Hymnary.org link

2. Watch against the devil’s snares 
Lest asleep he find thee; 
For indeed no pains he spares 
To deceive and blind thee. 
Satan’s prey 
Oft are they 
Who secure are sleeping 
And no watch are keeping. 

4. Watch against thyself, my soul, 
Lest with grace thou trifle; 
Let not self thy tho’ts control 
Nor God’s mercy stifle. 
Pride and sin 
Lurk within 
All thy hopes to scatter; 
Heed not when they flatter. 

5. But while watching, also pray 
To the Lord unceasing. 
He will free thee, be thy stay, 
Strength and faith increasing. 
O Lord, bless 
In distress 
And let nothing swerve me 
From the will to serve Thee.
