A Charge to Keep I Have
Words: Charles Wesley
Music: Cambridge (Harrison) | Ralph Harrison; arranged by Samuel Sebastian Wesley
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 O 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 for ever die.
