A Charge to Keep (Boylston)

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 pow’rs engage 
to do my Master’s will! 

Arm me with watchful care
as in Thy sight to live, 
and now Thy servant, Lord, prepare 
a strict account to give!
