330. A Charge to Keep I Have

1 A charge to keep I have,
A God to glorify,
Who gave His Son my soul to save,
And fit it for the sky.

2 To serve the present age,
My calling to fulfill,
O may it all my pow'rs 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,
By faith assured I will obey,
For I shall never die.
