467. A Charge to Keep I Have

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

2 To serve the present age,
My calling to fulfill;
O may it all my pow'rs engage
To do my Master's will!

Come, ye the love the Lord,
And let your joys be known:
Join in a song of sweet accord,
And thus surround the throne.
