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.
You and I have hope because God has power!
