Take Time to Be Holy

Take time to be holy.
Speak oft with thy Lord.
Abide in Him always
And feed on His word.
Make friends with God's children.
Help those who are weak,
Forgetting in nothing
His blessing to seek.

Take time to be holy.
The world rushes on.
Spend much time in secret
With Jesus alone.
By looking to Jesus
Like Him thou shalt be.
Thy friends in thy conduct
His likeness shall see.

Take time to be holy.
let Him be thy guide
And run not before Him
Whatever betide.
In joy or in sorrow
Still follow they Lord
And looking to Jesus
Still trust in His word.

Take time to be holy.
Be calm in thy soul.
Each thought and each motive
Beneath His control.
Thus, led by His Spirit
To fountains of love,
Thou soon shalt be fitted
For service above.
