Ye watchmen who stand upon the walls, who cannot cry peace in time of war, hold fast your faith
in confidence: fear not, nor be dismayed, though the enemy come in like a flood; neither cast aside
your shields as if they had not been anointed, for the Lord will have the victory in his own time,
and his banner shall yet be exalted. Verily, he knoweth those who stand in the gap and cannot
hold their peace for Jesus Christ's sake.
