1 Take time to be holy, speak oft with thy Lord;
abide in him always, and feed on his Word.
Make friends of God's children; help those who are weak;
forgetting in nothing his blessing to seek.

2 Take time to be holy, the world rushes on;
spend much time in secret with Jesus alone.
By looking to Jesus, like him thou shalt be;
thy friends in thy conduct his likeness shall see.

3 Take time to be holy, let him be thy guide,
and run not before him, whatever betide;
in joy or in sorrow, still follow thy Lord,
and, looking to Jesus, still trust in his Word.

4 Take time to be holy, be calm in thy soul;
each thought and each motive beneath his control;
thus led by his Spirit to fountains of love,
thou soon shalt be fitted for service above.
