1. My soul, be on they 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 every day,
    And help divine implore.
  3. Ne’er think the victory won,
    Nor lay thine armor down;
    Thy arduous task will not be done
    Till thou obtain the crown.
