Carol Indexes
Carols with a difference. Centuries old living tradition from communities in Yorkshire, Derbyshire and Nottinghamshire.

A charge to keep I have

A charge to keep I have,
A God to Glorify,
A never-dying soul to save,
And fit it for the sky.

To serve the present age,
My calling to fulfil,
Oh, may it all my powers engage
To do my master's will.

Arm me with jealous care,
As in thy sight to live,
And oh, Thy servant Lord, prepare,
A good account to give.

Help me to watch and pray,
And on Thyself rely,
And let me ne'er Thy trust betray
But press to realms on high.

– Black Bull, Ecclesfield
