298. Take Time to Be Holy

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 tho't and each motive
Beneath His control;
Thus led by His Spirit
To fountains of love,
Thou soon shalt be fitted
For service above.
