Christian, Dost Thou See Them?


Melody -


Christian, dost thou see them
On the holy ground,
How the powers of darkness
Compass thee around?
Christian, up and smite them,
Counting gain but loss,
In the strength that cometh,
By the holy cross.

2. Christian, dost thou feel them,
How they work within,
Striving, tempting, luring,
Goading into sin?
Christian, never tremble,
Never be downcast;
Gird thee for the battle,
Watch and pray and fast.

3. Christian, dost thou hear them,
How they speak thee fair,
"Always fast and vigil,
Always watch and prayer."
Christian, answer boldly,
"While I breathe I pray."
Peace shall follow battle,
Night shall end in day.
