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


        To serve the present age,
        By calling to fulfill;
        O may it all by powers engage
        To do my Masterís 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.


        ---Alternative verses---


        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:
        O may it all my powers engage
        To do my Masterís will!


        Arm me with jealous care,
        As in thy sight to live;
        And thy poor servant, Lord, prepare,
        A strict account to give.


        Help me to watch and pray,
        And on thyself rely;
        Assured, if I my trust betray,
        A second death Iíll die.
