A Charge to Keep I Have

A Charge to keep I have,

A God to glorify,

A never-dying soul to save,

And fit it for the sky.

TO serve the present age,

My calling to fulfill:

Oh, may it all my pow’rs engage

To do my Masters will!

Arm me with jealous care,

As in Thy Sight to live;

And O Thy servant, Lord, prepare

A strict account to give!

Help me to watch and pray,

And on Thyself rely,

Assured, if I my trust betray,

I shall forever die.

Charles Wesley – 1762
