Take time to be holy, speak much with your Lord

Take time to be holy, speak much with your Lord;
remain in him always, and feed on his word;
make friends of God’s children, help those who are weak,
forgetting in nothing his blessing to seek.

2. Take time to be holy, the world rushes on;
spend much time in secret with Jesus alone.
By looking to Jesus, like him you will be;
your friends, in your conduct, his likeness will see.

3. Take time to be holy, let him be your guide:
and run not before him, stay close to his side:
in joy or in sorrow still follow your Lord,
and, looking to Jesus, still trust in his word.

4. Take time to be holy, be calm in your soul,
each thought and emotion beneath his control.
So, led by his Spirit and filled with his love,
you soon will be fitted for service above.
