672. Take Time to Be Holy

1 Take time to be holy,
speak oft with your 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,
let him be your guide,
and run not before him,
whatever betide.
In joy or in sorrow,
still follow the Lord,
and, looking to Jesus,
still trust in his word.

3 Take time to be holy,
be calm in your soul,
each thought and each motive
beneath his control.
Thus led by his spirit
to fountains of love,
you soon shall be fitted
for service above.
