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.

3 Arm me with jealous care,
as in your sight to live;
and O your servant, Lord,
prepare a strict account to give.

4 Help me to watch and pray
and on yourself rely,
assured, if I my trust betray,
I shall forever die.
