Advent Hymnals

788. BE ON THY GUARD

Christ in Song,

1.
My soul, be on thy guard!
Ten thousand foes arise;
The hosts of sin are pressing hard
To draw thee from the skies.

2.
O watch, and fight, and pray!
The battle ne'er give o'er;
Renew it boldly ev'ry day
And help divine implore.

3.
Ne'er think the vict'ry won,
Nor lay thine armor down;
Thy arduous task will not be done
Till thou obtain the crown.
