     1 I charge thee therefore before God, and the Lord Jesus Christ, who shall judge the quick and the dead at his appearing and his kingdom; 2 Preach the word; be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all longsuffering and doctrine. 3 For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears; 4 And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables. 5 But watch thou in all things, endure afflictions, do the work of an evangelist, make full proof of thy ministry. 6 For I am now ready to be offered, and the time of my departure is at hand. 7 I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course, I have kept the faith: 8 Henceforth there is laid up for me a crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous judge, shall give me at that day: and not to me only, but unto all them also that love his appearing.(KJV)

1. Lord, as Thou wilt, deal Thou with me; 
No other wish I cherish. 
In life and death I cling to Thee; 
Oh, do not let me perish! 
Let not Thy grace from me depart 
And grant an ever patient heart 
To bear what Thou dost send me. 

2. Grant honor, truth, and purity, 
And love Thy Word to ponder; 
From all false doctrine keep me free. 
Bestow, both here and yonder, 
What serves my everlasting bliss; 
Preserve me from unrighteousness 
Throughout my earthly journey. 

3. When, at Thy summons, I must leave 
This vale of sin and sadness, 
Give me Thy grace, Lord, not to grieve, 
But to depart with gladness. 
To Thee my spirit I commend; 
O Lord, grant me a blessed end 
Through Jesus Christ, my Savior.
