The hymn, “Take Time To Be Holy”, written by William Longstaff, is a call to holiness, yet not in any vague way. The words of this song are full of wisdom and practical advice for the believer. This one verse by itself encourages us to be holy, to pray, to abide in Him, to read scripture, to fellowship with others, to serve, and to desire God’s blessing on our lives.
Take time to be holy; Speak oft with the Lord.
Abide in Him always, And feed on His Word.
Make friends with God’s children; Help those that are weak,
Forgetting in nothing His blessing to seek.
