832. Duty in Worship

1 Child of God, thou ’rt called for service,
Thou art called from Heav’n above;
Give the Lord the best—He gave thee
The full measure of His love;
Worship at His shrine of pleasure,
Just renew thy strength today;
Consecrate thyself forever,
Trust, oh, trust Him, and obey.

2 Child of God, thou ’rt called to duty,
Do thy best, thy humble part;
Worship Him in all the beauty
Of true holiness of heart;
Let no evil thing defile thee,
Let no tempting foes allure;
Should they flatter or revile thee,
Keep thy soul forever pure.

3 Child of God, the time is nearing
When we’ll hear the trumpet call,
When we’ll see the Lord appearing,
To the judgment bringing all;
Then He’ll say unto the righteous,
“Faithful thou hast been to Me;
Come, thou blessed of my Father,
To the home prepared for thee.”
