Don't Leave The Door Open

R-efrain from closing your eyes,
A-lways be alert and aware;
I-t's the devil that roams,
S-howing his roar and anger.
S-o don't leave the door open,man the wall and gate;
A-im to be vigilant, equip with love, hope, and faith.

B-e watchful seventeenth of January,
I-nstead of sleeping neath the heaven;
N-ever be oblivious or unmindful,
D-on't leave the door
O-pen.
