A Charge to Keep I Have
By Charles Wesley (1707–1788)
 
  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,        5
    My calling to fulfill:
Oh, may it all my powers engage
    To do my Master’s will!
 
  Arm me with jealous care,
    As in thy sight to live;        10
And oh, 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,        15
    I shall forever die.
