588. A Charge to Keep I Have

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 watchful care
as in thy sight to live,
and now thy servant, Lord,
prepare a strict account to give!

4 Help me to watch and pray,
and still on thee rely,
O let me not my trust betray,
but press to realms on high.
