Spirit Filled Sunday ~ Take Time to Be Holy

The lyrics to this song were in the chapter of God's Priorities for Today's Woman that we read this past week. I went looking for the song to post for Spirit Filled Sunday. I have not posted a song for a while and decided to look for this one. Boy was I surprised to find a version sung by Andy Griffith. My children and I love the old Andy Griffith shows. I hope you enjoy this... he doesn't have a bad voice. I remember him singing on the Andy Griffith show with his guitar, but I never knew he had albums for sale.

Please pay attention to the words.
They are powerful.
We... I... need to heed them more.

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 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 control.
Thus led by His Spirit to fountains of love,
Thou soon shalt be fitted for service above.
