A Charge to Keep I Have

A charge to keep, I have.
A God to glorify.
A never-dying soul to save
And fit it for the sky.

To Serve the present age
My calling to fulfill
O may it all my powers 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
Assured if I my trust betray
I shall forever die.
