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 powers engage
to do my Master's will!
3 Arm me with jealous care,
as in thy sight to live,
and oh, thy servant, Lord, prepare
a strict account to give!
4 Help me to watch and pray,
and on thyself rely,
assured, if I my trust betray,
I shall forever die.
