HELP ME TO WATCH AND PRAY




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.
