#317: A Charge to Keep I Have

(Part of a series singing through the hymnbook I grew up with: Great Hymns of the Faith)


A charge to keep I have —

A God to glorify,

Who have His Son my soul to save

And fit it for the sky.


To serve the present age,

My calling to fulfill —

O may it all my pow’rs engage

To do my Master’s will!


Arm me with jealous care,

As in Thy sight to live;

And O Thy servant, Lord, prepare

A strict account to give!


Help me to watch and pray,

And on Thyself rely;

And let me ne’er my trust betray,

But press to realms on high.
