Now how should we watch? A guard who was watching on the side of the Union soldiers in time of the war, was walking up and down while on duty, when he suddenly felt the approach of the enemy – danger; so he began to sing, ‘Jesus, lover of my soul, Let me to thy bosom fly,’ etc., and the verse that did the work was, ‘Other refuge have I none, Hangs my helpless soul on thee,’ etc.; he gave up to God. He afterward talked with the man who said he approached with his gun to his shoulder to shoot the guard, and he said his arm fell and the rifle with it; he could not shoot. That was watching; we must feel the danger and lift our thought to God; He will save us.   Mary Baker Eddy  (Oakes, Richard, Course In Divnity and General Collectanea, p.12-13
