A Charge To Keep I Have_ The Poole Brothers on Wade in the Water vol. 4 Smithsonian Museum Collection of African American Congregational Singingr

Lyrics:r
A charge to keep I have,r
A God to glorify,r
A never-dying soul to save,r
And fit it for the sky.r
r
To serve the present age,r
My calling to fulfill:r
O may it all my powers engager
To do my Masters will!r
r
Arm me with jealous care,r
As in Thy sight to live;r
And O Thy servant, Lord, preparer
A strict account to give!r
r
Help me to watch and pray,r
And on Thyself rely,r
Assured, if I my trust betray,r
I shall for ever die.r
r
(Who gave his son my soul to save and fit it for the sky)
