Tea Time with God: Take Time To Be Holy

Take Time To Be Holy

Take time to be holy,
Speak often with your 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 blessings 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 the 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 contrrol.
Thus led by His Spirit
To fountians of love,
Thou soon shall be fitted
For service above.  

William Dunn Longstaff, 1882

But godliness with contentment is great gain.
