JESUS, my Master and my Lord,

By A Collection of Hymns

      1 JESUS, my Master and my Lord,
      I would thy will obey,
      Humbly receive thy warning word,
      And always watch and pray.
      My constant need of watchful prayer
      I daily see and feel,
      To keep me safe from every snare
      Of sin, and earth, and hell.

      2 Into a world of ruffians sent,
      I walk on hostile ground,
      Wild human bears on slaughter bent,
      And ravening wolves, surround:
      The lion seeks my soul to slay
      In some unguarded hour,
      And waits to tear his sleeping prey,
      And watches to devour.

      3 But worse than all my foes I find
      The enemy within,
      The evil heart, the carnal mind,
      My own insidious sin:
      My nature every moment waits
      To render me secure,
      And all my paths with ease besets,
      To make my ruin sure.

      4 But thou hast given a loud alarm;
      And thou shalt still prepare
      My soul for all assaults, and arm
      With never-ceasing prayer;
      O do not suffer me to sleep,
      Who on thy love depend;
      But still thy faithful servant keep,
      And save me to the end!
