Hymn 9

Noah Calwell W Cannon

 Next Poem          

Let Zion's watchmen all awake
And take the alarm they give:
Now let them from the mouth of God,
The awful charge receive.

'Tis not a cause of small import,
The pastor's care demands,
But what might fill an angel's heart:
And fill a Saviour's hand.

They watch for souls for which the Lord
Did heavenly bless'd forego:
For souls which must forever live
In raptures or in wo!

All to the great tribunal haste,
Their account to render there,
And should'st thou strictly mark our faults,
Lord, where should we appear!

May they that Jesus, whom they preach,
Their own Redeemer see,
And watch thou daily o'er their souls,
That they may watch for thee,
