413. A Charge to Keep I Have

Text: Charles Wesley, 1707-1788
Music: Lowell Mason, 1792-1872
Tune: BOYLSTON, Meter: SM

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.
