A TIME TO KEEP
Now is a time to keep Christ’s word
And not deny His precious name,
Although church failures have occurred,
And all that leads to public shame.
Now is a time to keep your heart
From sin, the world, and Satan’s wiles
With grace Christ wishes to impart
To guard you when their power beguiles.
Now is a time to keep your foot
On God’s straight way when you approach
The house of God that you may meet
With happiness, and not reproach.
Now is a time to keep your eyes
Where God has chosen now to reap -
In all these things you will be wise
And with those saints Christ loves to keep.
