A Charge to Keep I Have

Charles Wesley
(1707-1788)

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.
