    Verse 1
    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.

    Verse 2
    Take time to be holy, the world rushes on;
    Spend much time in secret with Jesus alone ?
    By looking to Jesus, like Him thou shalt be;
    Thy friends in thy conduct His likeness shall see.

    Verse 3
    Take time to be holy, let Him be 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.

    Verse 4
    Take time to be holy, be calm in thy soul;
    Each thought and each temper beneath His control;
    Thus led by His Spirit to fountains of love,
    Thou soon shalt be fitted for service above.
