Take Time to Be Holy

Take time to be holy
Speak oft with thy Lord
Abide in Him always
And feed on His Word;
Make friends with God’s children
Help those who are weak,
Forgetting in nothing
His blessing to seek.
Take time to be holy
The world rushes on
Spend much time in secret
With Jesus alone;
By looking at Jesus
Like Him thou shalt be
Thy friends in thy conduct
His likeness shall see.
Time time to be holy
Let Him by thy Guide
And run not before Him
Whatever betide;
In joy or in sorrow
Still follow thy Lord,
And, looking to Jesus,
Still trust in His Word.
Take time to be holy
Be calm in thy soul
Each thought and each motive
Beneath His control;
Thus led by His Spirit
To fountains of love
Thou soon shalt be fitted
For service above.
(W. D. Longstaff)
