A Charge to Keep I Have
Hymn lyrics and .mp3 Download
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 jealous care, as in thy sight to live, and oh, thy servant, Lord, prepare a strict account to give!
4. Help me to watch and pray, and on thyself rely, assured, if I my trust betray, I shall forever die.
Words by: Charles Wesley
Music by: Lowell Mason
This 1762 hymn by Charles Wesley was heard in the gospel camp grounds from the rows of tents in the morning. The title of President George Bush's autobiography A Charge to Keep was drawn from this hymn.
