Lyrics:William D. Longstaff
Music:George C. Stebbins

This hymn has a unique tune.


Take time to behold Him,

Speak oft with Thy Lord,

Abide in Him always,

And feed on His Word.

Wait thou in His presence,

Submissive and meek,

Forgetting in nothing

His blessing to seek.


Take time to behold Him,

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 behold Him,

Let Him be thy guide;

And run not before Him

Whatever betide;

In joy or in sorrow

Still follow thy Lord,

And, looking to Jesus,

Still trust in His Word.


Take time to behold Him,

Be calm in thy soul,

Each thought and each temper

Beneath His control.

Thus led by His Spirit

To fountains of love,

Thou then shalt be fitted

His mercy to prove.
