A CHARGE TO KEEP I HAVE (By: Charles Wesley, 1707-1788)

A charge to keep I have -

A God to glorify,

Who gave 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 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;

And let me ne'er my trust betray,

But press to realms on high.
