I Peter 5:8

Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour

This verse’s original context was about Satan’s attacks in a believer’s ordinary daily life. This song takes the charge to vigilance and places it in a new context: Faithfulness as we watch and pray for the Second Coming.
