Take Time to Be Holy
W.D. Longstaff, Geo. C. Stebbins
Take time to be holy, speak oft with thy Lord;
Abide with Him always, and feed on His Word.
Make friends of God's children; help those who are weak,
Forgetting in nothing His blessings to seek.
Take time to be holy, the world rushes on;
Spend much time in secret with Jesus alone.
Abiding in Jesus, like Him thou shalt be;
Thy friends in thy conduct His likeness shall see.
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 shall be fitted for service above.
