Hymn 401 - Take Time to Be Holy

Instrumental Accompaniments

Vocal Accompaniments


Take time to be holy,

Speak oft with thy Lord;

Abide 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.

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.

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.

Take time to be holy,

Be calm in thy soul;

Each tho’t and each motive

Beneath His control;

Thus led by His Spirit

To fountains of love,

Thou soon shalt be fitted

For service above.
