A HYMN FOR TODAY – My Soul, Be On Thy Guard

A HYMN FOR TODAY

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

O watch, and fight, and pray;
The battle ne’er give o’er;
Renew it boldly every day,
And help divine implore.

Ne’er think the vict’ry won
Nor lay thine armor down;
The work of faith will not be done
Till thou obtain the crown.

Fight on, my soul, till death
Shall bring thee to thy God;
He’ll take thee, at thy parting breath,
To His divine abode.

SM (6.6.8.6) – George Heath, 1781

Tune: LABAN – Lowell Mason, 1830

#523 in Psalms, Hymns, and Spiritual Songs, 2012
